>TOP PICK: LADY IN WHITE Here's a lulu of a ghost story with Lukas (Witness) Hass as a boy locked in his school cloakroom by prankster pals on Halloween night. Writer-director Frank LaLoggia combines mayhem and mirth in just the right doses. (Virgin Vision)

ADOLESCENT DRIVEL; JOHNNY BE GOOD Anthony Michael Hall stars in a dumb PG-13 football farce that has added sexually explicit footage for video. Yuck. (Orion)

POSTADOLESCENT DRIVEL: SHE'S HAVING A BABY Aided by Kevin Bacon and Elizabeth McGovern, teen-flick king John Hughes tries grown-up comedy and fails. (Paramount)

SLEEPER HIT: THE MILAGRO BEANFIELD WAR Director Robert Redford's tale of New Mexico farmers versus real-estate developers is gritty, funny and moving. (MCA)
