"Witch's Brew," the latest effort from horrific Baltimore director Chris LaMartina, gets its world premiere at the Charles Theatre Wednesday night. The movie, filmed in and around Baltimore over the past two years, offers the twisted tale of a couple local brewmasters who run afoul of a witch. The results are predictably horrifying — especially to those unlucky enough to sample their "Slacker Lager. " As the movie's tagline so succinctly puts it, "Liver damage will be the LEAST of your problems.

“Welcome to divorce, b---h.”   This week's episode begins with Brandi naked in a bathtub, explaining to gal-pal Jennifer Gimenez that seeing as she's settled into her new digs, she no longer has much use for real estate boyfriend J.R. To that end, she plans to have “the talk” with him at dinner that evening.  And have “the talk” she does. When J.R. arrives to meet the freshly-bathed Brandi, she greets him with the double kiss of death, worrying J.R. He's right to be concerned - Brandi wastes no time getting to the point and telling him that their relationship is over.

The Miami Dolphins gave the Ravens a Halloween treat on Thursday night, scoring a strange 22-20 overtime victory that ended when Cincinnati Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton was sacked in the end zone by Cam Wake for a walk-off safety. It was only the third time in NFL history an overtime game had ended on a safety. The fact that it happened right before midnight, on the scariest day of the year, made it that much more delicious. More importantly for the Ravens, it was the first time the Bengals have been defeated since they lost to the Browns on Sept.

American moviegoers spent more than $60 million last weekend watching film of the Maryland countryside.Of course, it helped that the Old Line State's countryside was decorated with the likes of Julia Roberts, Richard Gere and a 200-year-old witch with an insatiable appetite for student filmmakers.In a weekend that looks like it may have been Hollywood's most profitable ever, the two highest-grossing films were both shot right here in Maryland. Top moneymaker "Runaway Bride," the long-awaited re-teaming of Roberts, Gere and "Pretty Woman" director Garry Marshall that was shot largely in Berlin on the Eastern Shore, pulled in an estimated $34.5 million.

ROSSVILLE, Ill. -- Things were already going downhill in this small farming community when the witches arrived. Area factories had shut down. So had the local high school. A suspicious fire had destroyed much of the downtown. The use of methamphetamine was destroying families. So when a group of Wiccans from out of town moved into a storefront this summer and put up a sign advertising "Witch School," it was only a matter of time before alarm bells sounded and tempers started to boil in this village of 1,200 about 125 miles south of Chicago near the Indiana border.

It's easy being green, once you learn the knack. To create the distinctive pigment for Elphaba, the title witch in "Wicked," makeup designer Joseph Dulude had one goal. "The most important thing was that we didn't want it to look fake," Dulude said. "We wanted it to look like skin, and we wanted Elphaba to be pretty. People hate her not because she's ugly, but because her skin color is different. " Dulude tried several products before he settled on Landscape Green Chromacake, after discovering that it could not be applied full-strength, which required airbrushing.

In describing the status of cyclist Lance Armstrong, reporter Jill Rosen somehow managed to turn from straight reportage to editorializing ("To host Lance Armstrong, triathlon drops sanctioning," Sept. 21). Mr. Armstrong has not been proven guilty of anything and has been pursued by the several anti-doping authorities for most of his career. I can only assume that he finally gave up fighting the USADA's most recent attacks because he was worn out after all of this fighting - or maybe it was just the continuing financial cost of defending himself.

ELKINS, W.Va. - Roaming the switchback tableaux of West Virginia, from teeming flea markets to still-life cemeteries, Gerry Milnes, a folklorist steeped in Appalachian discovery, traverses a paradox: Modern highways let him journey among the secrets of the mountain hollows far faster in the 27th year of his serendipitous mission. But so, too, do the roads speed the young generation away from their roots, endangering the chance to carry on the old, unwritten craft of johnboat building down in Gauley Bridge, for example, or the art of backwoods witch-doctoring still practiced hereabouts beyond the interstate.

"Lovely Molly," the horrific tale of a woman either demonically possessed or tragically insane, may be the film that makes Eduardo Sanchez someone other than one of the guys responsible for 1999's "The Blair Witch Project. " Which would be fine with the Maryland-raised filmmaker, whose movie gets its local premiere tonight to cap the first day of the 14th Maryland Film Festival. "I love being one of the guys that did 'Blair Witch,' but I'm really proud of 'Lovely Molly,'" Sanchez, 44, said about the film he shot last fall in and around Hagerstown.
