Jamie Campbell Bower,
When an unseen enemy threatens mankind by taking over their bodies and erasing their memories, Melanie will risk everything to protect the people she cares most about, proving that love can conquer all in a dangerous new world.
As a string of mysterious killings grips Seattle, Bella, whose high school graduation is fast approaching, is forced to choose between her love for vampire Edward and her friendship with werewolf Jacob.
Rose Hathaway is a dhampir, half-vampire and half-human, who is training to be a guardian at St Vladimir's Academy along with many others like her. There are good and bad vampires in their world: Moroi, who co-exist peacefully among the humans and only take blood from donors, and also possess the ability to control one of the four elements - water, earth, fire or air; and Strigoi, blood-sucking, evil vampires who drink to kill. Rose and other dhampir guardians are trained to protect Moroi and kill Strigoi throughout their education. Along with her best friend, Princess Vasilisa Dragomir, a Moroi and the last of her line, with whom she has a nigh unbreakable bond, Rose must run away from St Vladimir's, in order to protect Lissa from those who wish to harm the princess and use her for their own means.

[about a song on the radio]
Oh, Father, turn it up.
Please, Mr. Dragomir, I love this song.
This song is sick... the traditional "vomit" definition of the word.
Shut up, Andre. Me and Rose want to hear it.
"Rose and I," Lissa, "Rose and I."
I think the tune is rather catchy.

This movie sucks! No, really, it sucks! This film would need a stake through its heart, if it had one.
No spoiler alert is necessary here because you can see what's coming about 14 miles off; it's a tiresome 100-minute mash-up of Underworld (which was pretty good), Harry Potter (which was somewhat better), Twilight (which was marginally better), and Mean Girls (which was awful, but not as awful as this movie). You know it's going to be bad when the opening credits list Harvey Weinstein, that Hollywood, ruling-class, plutocratic, anti-gun zealot, who's very comfortable with his own armed guards, but thinks us commoners should not be allowed to own firearms for self-defense. Oh the humanity! Pouting actresses with bee-stung lips and hunky actors with sinewy pecs spout quirky lines and moon after each other. This film was so bad I couldn't tell if it was satirizing the movies it's derived from, or if it was meant to be original. Avoid this turkey like a vampire shuns daylight! Zero stars!
