Here is additional information on sex, violence and profanity in Twilight...

Forced to move to a new school mid-year is unsettling for Bella, although her new classmates warmly welcome her. Another group of students, however, remain on the fringes of the group. Two youth are sent to the hospital after a near fatal car accident. A group of beer-toting male teens surround a lone girl on a dark street and threaten her. A vampire bites the necks of his victims. Two men are chased, attacked and killed by vampires (deaths occur off-screen). The covered corpse of one victim is seen. A girl is injured by a glass shard in her leg and nearly killed during a brutal fight between two vampires. Bloody injuries are portrayed. Characters are thrown into mirrors, across a room and through windows during the brawl. One character is beheaded, dismembered and burned (without graphic detail). Illustrated depictions of death are seen in a book. Teens host a casino and gamble during a school dance. Characters are shown drinking or with beer cans on several occasions, including while cleaning a rifle. Girls make sexually-oriented comments about male anatomy. Other brief sexual innuendos are contained in the script. A girl wears a low cut dress with the intention of revealing her chest. Teens kiss passionately in a bedroom. Infrequent terms of Christian Deity are used.

Here are some ideas for home video titles that are related to Twilight.

Other movies in the Twilight Saga franchise include The Twilight Saga: New Moon and Twilight Saga: Eclipse.

Love between a human and another immortal being also blossoms when Winnie Foster falls for a strange young man she meets in the forest in Tuck Everlasting. Though both made of flesh and blood, Landon Carter, the high school bad-boy, and the Bible-carrying Jamie Sullivan might as well be from different realms when they fall in love in A Walk to Remember.

Lead actor Robert Pattinson is no stranger to celluloid worlds of supernatural beings, as he played the role of Cedric Diggory in Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix and Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire.
