Horror anthologies composed of unrelated short stories frighten Hollywood directors for very good reasons. It's difficult to make an impact and develop characters in a compressed space, and an effective episode can make the others look tame. In Bedevil, a serving of three tales rooted in the folk myths of North Australia, Tracey Moffatt meets the same fate that befell the film version of The Twilight Zone. In a strong opening sequence, she ponders the end of a GI stationed in Queensland during World War II and the macabre beliefs about the swamp where it happened.

Mike Bozza first heard the death threats as he stood on the deck of a ferry sailing between Macao and Hong Kong. This was early in May, a day or two after he and three other law enforcement officials from New Jersey had arrived in Hong Kong to look for a group of alleged international card cheats who had looted Atlantic City casinos of $2.7 million. A Royal Hong Kong Police investigator, assigned to assist the New Jersey authorities, told Bozza the police had learned that his life and the lives of those with him might be in danger.

When organizers of a program aimed at protecting older people came looking for volunteers late last year, 71-year-old Bill Gennetti signed up. Senior citizens are "easy pickings" for criminals, the Villanova resident said. Now, as the Chester County "Triad" - a joint effort by the Sheriff's Department, the county Chiefs of Police Association and the American Association of Retired Persons - nears its one-year anniversary, he sees progress being made. "We're really trying to accomplish things this year," said Gennetti, who heard about the program at a meeting of the Eastern Chester County Chapter of AARP.

President-elect Bill Clinton, who has promised to cut $60 billion from George Bush's defense budgets over the next five years, may face pressure to dig deeper into and perhaps even scuttle the nation's nuclear bombers and land-based missiles. A growing number of military experts believe that the so-called nuclear triad - the intentionally redundant deployment of nuclear forces aboard bombers, submarines and land-based missiles - has become a costly anachronism. Since the early days of the Cold War, such deployment has been at the heart of the American nuclear deterrent.

In his day, Joseph Montemayor was a strong, stout man, afraid of no one. But across 90 years, arthritis has knotted his arms and legs. A fall has permanently crippled his hip. He now moves with the aid of a metal walker. He now moves in fear. "Years ago, when I was young, I was able to defend myself," Montemayor said on a recent morning at the Senior Adult Activities Center in Norristown. "Today, I can't. "If I go to the mall, and I go into the bathroom by myself, I get suspicious, I am afraid.

DEAR ABBY : You printed a letter from one of your readers who was upset over her son's polyamorous relationship. Now that my triad is ready to come out to my boyfriend's family, I feel the need to ask your advice. My husband and I have been together 10 years. We started out as swingers. When we met my now-boyfriend, it became apparent that it was going to be more serious. Our arrangement is a "V" triad, meaning I am involved with two (husband and boyfriend), but they are not involved with each other.

Rookie Magglio Ordonez hit a tying homer in the seventh inning and pinch-hitter Ruben Sierra had a two-run double in the eighth as the visiting Chicago White Sox rallied for a 6-5 victory over the Anaheim Angels last night. Allen Watson pitched six innings for the Angels, allowing three runs and five hits. The lefthander departed with a 4-3 lead before Rich DeLucia (1-1) surrendered Ordonez's fifth homer and second in two nights with two out in the seventh. DeLucia, who was charged with three runs in 1 1/3 innings, walked Robin Ventura with one out in the eighth before Wil Cordero singled.

Where once there were apple trees, there is now a giant apple. U.S. Healthcare, the fifth-largest HMO in the country - with more than one million customers and $1 billion in revenues in 1989 - recently relocated its corporate headquarters to a shiny new building set on a former apple orchard at Union Meeting Road in Blue Bell. The firm's old building, down the street on Jolly Road, was crowded. It still houses about 900 of the company's 1,700 employees. There is no shortage of praise surrounding Blue Bell's latest chunk of concrete.

Stepmom, the melodrama starring Julia Roberts as the career girl reluctant to parent her lover's kids by his ex-wife, earth mama Susan Sarandon, provokes conflicting reactions. As a critic, I found it a contrived and tired scenario that pits working woman against stay-at-home mom. As a moviegoer, I sobbed because it plays exposed nerves as though they were violin strings in the orchestra performing John Williams' insistent score. And as a stepmother, I choked up, with tears and bile, at the film's depiction of the painful emotions experienced by at least two sides of the divorce triad.

Bang! Kapow! Ka-boom! That's how networks serve up their dramas in this ultra-competitive age. Terrified of losing their audiences to FX or Netflix, they slam viewers with shrill, abusive body blows.

Within 90 seconds, we're thrown into the middle of a deadly train derailment The third in Wolf's Chicago triumvirate, after Chicago Fire and Chicago P.D. , the series premieres at 9 p.m. Tuesday on NBC. Wolf opens on devilishly good-looking Dr. Connor Rhodes ( Arrow 's Colin Donnell)

It takes chutzpah to make a movie about a pharmaceutical executive devoted to a cure for AIDS who engages in promiscuously unprotected sex by servicing lesbians who want children. It takes nerve to make this same movie about an African American intellectual, because it risks caricaturing the black man as sexual stud. Likewise it takes brass to ask whether this dude has paternal responsibility for the children he has sired, because it risks suggesting that his behavior isn't so different from the guys who enjoy sex but shirk its consequences.

The idea of using a .22-caliber rifle to rid the borough of the problem was briefly entertained. Officials also thought about using a tranquilizer gun. They tried setting a trap with appetizing bait, but there was too much natural forage, so the plan didn't work. In the end - although most of Haddon Heights' guinea hens were captured and relocated - a pesky trio remained at large. Camden County animal-control personnel are stumped as to how to find and remove them.

The 14K Triad, one of the deadliest organized crime families in China, nearly set up a chapter here. Kin Yan Tam, 44, of Hong Kong, and two co-defendants planned to recruit members for the 14K Triad to strengthen their new nine-month old heroin connection between China and Philadelphia. But before they had a chance to recruit and organize new members, a Canadian Customs inspector seized triad materials in Vancouver and, later, the FBI seized the rest of the materials here - along with 18 members of the international heroin and money laundering conspiracy.
