  In front of Naomi Watts sat a pen and paper. Across the table sat Tom Holland, a pale young British actor in his early teens. Soon enough, they both knew, they would leave the comfort of their rehearsal room in Spain. They would be dressed in ripped clothes and covered in fake blood, pummeled by murky waves and pushed to their physical limits. But first, they had to draw each other. "I can't draw at all," Watts confessed in a recent phone interview. "And it was quite clear that Tom was having problems too. " Holland picked up his pen and sketched a few tentative lines.

A couple of years ago Bay Area abstract painter Tom Holland defected to Neo-Expressionism, to the consternation of his admirers. Now he has redefected to abstraction again. Such flip-flops, like the case of the KGB man who came over to our side and then decided to go home, are confusing and raise questions about the defector's convictions and motives.

Writer-director Tom Holland scared audiences with "Fright Night." Now he's "chilling the cast," according to a spokesman for UA's "Childsplay," which has eight outdoor locations this month in Chicago, where it's been as cold as 20 below--with a wind-chill factor of 50 below. But: "At least it hasn't snowed." Yet.

President Carlos Menem has weathered corruption scandals in his administration, high unemployment rates and a national financial crisis this year to end up as the favored candidate in Argentina's presidential elections set for Sunday. Most pollsters say Menem, 64, is likely to win reelection in the first round. But some give challenger Jose Bordon, 49, a small chance of forcing Menem into a runoff. The latest polls show Menem leading with 45% to 47% of the vote, against 33% for Bordon.

Rubicon The Last Years of the Roman Republic Tom Holland Doubleday: 408 pp., $27.50 * The Rubicon is an ancient river associated not with romance, like the Seine, or boyhood adventure, like the Mississippi, but with decisive turning points. The river's fame -- infamy, really -- can be credited to Julius Caesar, who marched his legions across it and installed himself as dictator of Rome, destroying an ideal of republican governance that had lasted for 500 years.

Bay Area veteran Tom Holland turns up with a substantial show of some 20 large abstract paintings. In characteristic fashion, some hang on the wall while others in plexiglass and aluminum formats are bent into three dimensions and stand about, looking very much like sculpture. An impressive job called "Mann" hangs from the ceiling like a giant mobile. We think of Frank Stella as the artist who exploded painting into 3-D but --if memory serves--Holland was there first, grommeting away.

"Fright Night" (1985), directed by Tom Holland. 105 minutes. Rated R. Scary, funny and intentionally campy, "Fright Night" revolves around a teen-ager who thinks his new next door neighbor is a vampire. Chris Sarandon makes a wise-cracking, smug resident Dracula, and Roddy McDowall plays "The Great Vampire Killer" with verve. A perfect mix of comedy and chills.
