I read with curiosity the Marta Mossburg column regarding the Baltimore Ravens ("Faith fuels 'mighty men' of Baltimore," March 13). Without a doubt, I would estimate that 95 percent of the Baltimore area is thrilled with the success of our Ravens. Is Ms. Mossburg attributing the Ravens' success to their faith in what they have deemed beneficial or to some intrinsic, prejudiced and magical power of the Judeo/Christian Bible and Christianity? There is a huge difference. The power of belief is undeniable.

This is how I imagined the meeting at MTV went when they first discussed "Death Valley" Producer 1: Hey, you know how zombies are popular? Producer 2: Oh yeah. And vampires. I hear they're big . Producer 3: And werewolves. We already have a show about a teenage werewolf, but why not another? Producer 4: Oh my God, you guys. Why not put them all in the same show! Producers 1, 2 and 3 : Genius! MTV's latest attempt at scripted fare is the horror-comedy "Death Valley," premiering at 10:30 p.m. Aug. 29. It's set in California's San Fernando Valley, not in the desert.

WEEPING CHURCH statues and portraits? Priests suffering from stigmata? Esoteric messages from saints and the supernatural? Granted, this makes great copy, but media attention to such phenomena only serves to bestow undeserved legitimacy on so-called "supernatural occurances" and feed irrational beliefs.The fact is, all the reported phenomena can be explained entirely in physical or natural terms -- if the observers are objective, rational and analytical. For example, paint solvents are known to leach out of surfaces under certain conditions of humidity and temperature.

Now that Carlos Santana has rewritten the book on late-career comebacks, what does he do for an encore? The answer arrived yesterday with Shaman, the follow-up to the 1999 pop landmark Supernatural, which sold 25 million copies, spent two years on the Billboard 200 album chart (12 weeks at No. 1) and hauled in nine Grammy Awards. Supernatural was masterminded by longtime Santana mentor Clive Davis, who signed the guitarist to his original deal at Columbia Records more than 30 years ago. The album was designed to get Santana back on the charts by pairing him with a batch of contemporary hitmakers, regardless of how little they had in common with the guitarist's Latin-rock heritage: Matchbox Twenty's Rob Thomas, Wyclef Jean, Lauryn Hill, Everlast, Dave Matthews.

The men who've made the movie version of Susan Cooper's fantasy novel about Light vs. Dark, The Dark is Rising, have tinkered with everything in the book, altering the nationality, age and family of the young immortal hero, as well as adding a potential Judas character and gaudy magical transformations. So why didn't the makers of The Seeker: The Dark is Rising go all the way and change the villain - the Dark's main man - from a fearsome horseman known as the Rider to something we haven't seen before?

One measure of a good mystery thriller is how many red herrings are swimming around in the plot to temporarily confuse things. And by that standard, "The Lookalike," the latest world premiere movie on the USA Network of basic cable, is ultimately pretty engaging.But some viewers may be so puzzled by the movie's double identity they will not stick around for a genuinely surprising ending. Starring Melissa Gilbert and Diane Ladd, "The Lookalike" (at 9 tonight, with repeats Dec. 16 and 22) swings between the supernatural thriller genre and the plain old Earthbound mystery, with a touch of the "Three Faces of Eve" psychological case study.

"I was born the night she found me. " -- Eric Northman Whether or not you believe in the powers of a full moon, it's hard to deny that if a place would be affected by lunar fatness, it would be Bon Temps. Let's see: In this episode, Jason finally got some time to shine (funniest Jason lines ever!) but did he become a werepanther? Arlene and Terry had more baby drama -- or it it babydoll drama? We found out just what Marnie can do (though it's still a bit confusing). Even in Mexico, the moon did some powerful things. And there was some full-moon romance as well.

Mexican-born filmmaker Guillermo del Toro plants kernels of truth within cornucopias of inspired grotesquerie. In his own words, he makes "eye protein, not eye candy. " His chef d'oeuvre — to date — is "Pan's Labyrinth" (2006), the rare fairy tale to win three Academy Awards. Equally provocative and cathartic, it's an inspired choice for viewing and discussion at the splendid FilmTalk series at the Central Library on Saturday. Set in 1944 Spain, the story tests the mettle of its 12-year-old heroine, Ofelia, when she travels with her mother to a remote military outpost.

Believers beat skeptics dead-cold when it comes to affecting the reception of a big-budget movie. Catholic groups that protested the release of that free-thinking spectacle The Golden Compass congratulated themselves on its disappointing returns at the box office this week. But you haven't heard a peep from any atheist groups who might protest I Am Legend for implying that God is responsible for saving a remnant of mankind from a virus that turns most people into zombielike vampires. Midway through, the last thing the military-scientist hero, played by Will Smith, sees before he thinks he'll succumb to a swarm of "Dark Seekers" is a glittering cross.

Ed Okonowicz has a knack for mixing history with its ghosts. On a recent afternoon, he demonstrated his storytelling technique with a yarn about the Jericho Covered Bridge. He began with facts: The bridge was built in the 1800s and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Then he sprinkled in some hair-raising legends. In one account, people claimed they saw slaves hanging from the bridge's rafters; in another, some said their cars inexplicably stalled on the bridge. "My stories are 50 percent history and 50 percent ghost stories," said Okonowicz, a 59-year-old Elkton resident.

Yesterday, Ingmar Bergman finally confronted the great antagonist of his epic moviemaking career. The writer-director who created indelible images of mortality came face to face with Death. At the age of 89, he died at his Faro Island home off the coast of Sweden. Perhaps, like Max von Sydow's knight in The Seventh Seal, he cried out to a god "who must be somewhere." But one prefers to see him as the artist-juggler sees the knight in the haunting climax of that movie, dancing "away from the dawn" with a string of fellow travelers "while the rain washes their faces and clears the salt of the tears from their cheeks."
