Satan may be popping up with alarming regularity in movies right now, but his appearance in Bedazzled is a temptation that can be easily and safely resisted. Harold Ramis' remake of the 1967 cult favorite, which starred Peter Cook as the prince of darkness and Dudley Moore as a short-order cook with a bad case of unrequited lust, is, to put it kindly, dreary and redundant. In this Bedazzled, the devil is played by Elizabeth Hurley. When she shows up to offer to fulfill seven wishes for Brendan Fraser, his response will leave men in the audience gasping in incredulity.

Comics Guy feels the need to describe the lead character in Dynamite's latest "Project Superpowers" spinoff, "The Death-Defying Devil,"because writer Joe Casey sure doesn't, at least not in a traditional way. If you're unfamiliar with the character, you get only bits and pieces of who he is and what he can do in the first two issues. Casey and Dynamite likely felt they could get away with this mystery-heavy approach since there are tons of Alex Ross fans who would be drawn to the project because of his involvement in the book as plotter, cover artist and art director and "Project Superheroes" has proved an incredibly popular title for Dynamite.

The prosecutor called the woman "a firebug" yesterday. And Delores Castro, 59, didn't disagree. But Castro, a former mental patient, said she had no control over herself when she set fire to an apartment building last year, killing a 73-year-old man, and causing five others to be hospitalized, including a firefighter. "The devil made me do it," said Castro, who pleaded guilty, but mentally ill, to a second-degree murder before Common Pleas Judge Robert A. Latrone. The judge sentenced her to life in prison, ordering the term to begin in a mental institution.

The Master and Margarita is one of those don't-drop-it-on-your-foot Russian novels that I confess I've owned for many years but never read. Mum Puppettheatre's production is an adaptation for two people and many, many puppets; it is an immense undertaking and the two actors/puppeteers - Robert Smythe and Robert DaPonte - perform heroically. It must be said, however, that puppet shows shouldn't be three hours long - especially if the staging involves a lot of neck-craning that segues into shoulder-shrugging as the plot becomes more and more incoherent.

"Prince of Darkness," a horror film starring Donald Pleasance, Lisa Blount, Victor Wong and Jameson Parker. Directed by John Carpenter. Screenplay by Martin Quartermass. Running time: 98 minutes. A Universal release. At area theaters. "Prince of Darkness," John Carpenter's latest horror extravaganza, is scary. It's funny. It makes absolutely no sense, but, as the poet Robert Frost noted in another context, "When was that ever a bar to any watch they keep?" As far as I can tell, the film is about the return to consciousness of the Devil, who, for reasons I still haven't figured out, has been kept prisoner for the last 2,000 years in a liquid cannister, currently located in the basement of a Los Angeles Catholic church.

On Friday night, neighborhoods were filled with devils and ghouls roving under the watchful eye of parents. For most people, the sight was worth a chuckle and a few pieces of trick-or-treat candy. For others, though, such devilry and revelry are no laughing matter, but a dangerous flirtation with forces of evil. "Halloween is the devil's day," says Peggy Scrimali, head of Bethel Christian Academy in Blackwood, N.J., a nursery school and kindergarten where Halloween was not observed.

THIS IS no country for old women trying to imply that they can speak before the devil knows they're speaking. But it IS a country that had better become acutely aware of the devil Hillary as a master of manipulation who offers the audacity of desperation and deceit through her many disciples. Somehow the sulfuric odor rising up from her crocodile tears must have wafted across the room and dulled the senses of those who witnessed that Hillaryous crying stint, and so New Hampshire went the wrong way. But since then, we've cleared our eyes and donned our gas masks, and we now have no excuses but to see her exploitative side in all its ugliness.

Kelvim Escobar and the Anaheim Angels shut down the Yankees all weekend. Good thing for New York it's not October yet. Escobar (8-9) outdueled Kevin Brown (9-3), Bengie Molina went 4-for-4 with a three-run homer and visiting Anaheim completed a three-game sweep of the Yankees with a 4-3 win yesterday. "This is a playoff team. You need to go in and show you can play with them," Angels closer Troy Percival said. "We ran into a New York team that isn't playing its best ball - we know that.

When Mel Gibson, playing the 18th-century owner of a South Carolina plantation, plows his own field in "The Patriot," it seemed a little suspicious. When the British come to recruit his "slaves" as soldiers, they refuse, noting that they are free men, working the plantation for wages. This also seemed a little suspicious, given the time and place, although historians will point out it was certainly possible: Free blacks did exist. Yeah, well, so did slaves, and "The Patriot" seemed to tap-dance around the rather gnarly subject of a man who fought for one kind of freedom but not another.

MECHANICSBURG, Pa. - As criticism continued over his slams against the parents of a Muslim U.S. soldier killed in Iraq, Donald Trump returned to Pennsylvania on Monday night, calling Hillary Clinton "the devil" and predicting he will be the first Republican presidential nominee in a generation to win the state. "My guys are so sure of it," he said, drawing cheers from the crowd in the Cumberland Valley High School gymnasium. "It's going to happen. " Trump avoided addressing the public spat with the parents of Capt.

Back in the 1990s, real estate sales data were considered closely guarded secrets - by some, at least. That meant one of the most difficult things about this job was finding numbers to support what real estate agents were saying about the market. Fortunately, there were some Realtors who thought the attempt at secrecy was nonsense and successfully argued that, in the words of one, if they didn't provide sales numbers when the market was bad, how would I know when it was good.

When Maurice Adside was fatally shot last month outside Cousin Danny's Exotic Haven in West Philadelphia, he became the eighth person killed since 2009 within two blocks of the decades-old strip club. His surviving relatives and some residents of the block are convinced that all the bloodshed flows from Cousin Danny's. But the club's owner, Daniel Freeman Sr., and its manager, Daniel Freeman Jr., portray their business as a victim of a violent city. "How can we stop people's kids from killing each other in the neighborhood?"

NEWARK, N.J. - The Flyers scored almost as many goals Tuesday night (six) as they had in their last five losses (seven). Against defensive-minded New Jersey, no less. Thanks to four goals in the final 7 minutes, 38 seconds, the Flyers overcame their own undisciplined play and recorded a critical 6-3 victory over New Jersey at the Prudential Center. In a game many Flyers labeled as a "must-win," Brayden Schenn had a goal and two assists as the visitors moved to within four points of a playoff spot and five points of the Devils.

Flyers defenseman Shayne Gostisbehere earned an NHL and team record Saturday, but he thought it was a bittersweet afternoon. His team lost a point to a playoff challenger, and he lost a defensive partner during a 2-1 overtime defeat to the New Jersey Devils at the Wells Fargo Center. Adam Henrique's power-play goal with 2 minutes, 2 seconds left in overtime earned two points for the Devils. Gostisbehere's power-play goal in the third period gave him points in 11 consecutive games, an NHL record for a rookie defenseman.

With the wild-card race intensifying, the Flyers desperately need to defeat a team they are chasing, the New Jersey Devils, in Saturday's matinee at the Wells Fargo Center. The Flyers are four points behind New Jersey and have two games in hand on the Devils, who began Friday tied with Pittsburgh with 61 points. The Penguins entered Friday in the last wild-card spot because they had played fewer games than New Jersey. "Every game is a must-win for us," winger Jake Voracek said Friday after practice in Voorhees.

Steve Mason grabbed his water bottle from the top of the net and raised his helmet. The Flyers goalie had allowed his third goal of the game. It was time for another break. Mason's defense forced him to fend for himself Thursday night as the New Jersey Devils blitzed the net in the third period of a 4-1 loss. The goaltender took a squirt from the bottle and turned to the Wells Fargo Center scoreboard. He watched a replay of Travis Zajac's power-play goal, which was fired past three Flyers who were shielding Mason.

THERE WAS a Halloween celebration inside Wells Fargo Center Thursday night. Fans were asked to come in costume to observe the holiday two days early, since the Flyers will be on the road for nine days starting Friday in Buffalo. Fans who weren't dressed as red, padded seats were treated to a show that needed no costumes to bare its identity. The Flyers and Devils dressed as themselves and played a typical Flyers-Devils affair. There wasn't much pace, not a lot of flair, and, as per usual, not a ton of scoring - at least not early.

NEWARK, N.J. - The Flyers did everything they could to treat their preseason finale in New Jersey like a normal game night. After working out Thursday, they left for Newark, stayed overnight and had a morning skate at the Prudential Center just like a regular-season game. New coach Dave Hakstol said he was looking to see a "progression" on the ice from the beginning of training camp. "I'd like to see us be able to play a little bit quicker within all the areas of the game," he said a little more than two hours before the puck dropped.
