Some Hervey Bay Twilight fans scream during premiere

HERVEY Bay Twilight fans seemed to be in sympathy with the enemy at the BigScreen Cinemas at the midnight showing of the final instalment of the films on Wednesday.

The Twihards turned out in strong numbers for Breaking Dawn Part 2, with many choosing to dress up as the ancient, evil vampire royalty, the Volturi, who clash with the Cullen family during the film.

Any sympathy for the Volturi swiftly faded as the film progressed however, particularly during a surprise sequence that left some members of the large audience screaming.

The film centres on the consequences of the birth of Edward and Bella's half vampire, half human child, Renesmee.

It is Renesmee who brings the Cullens into conflict with the Volturi when she is mistaken for an immortal child - a child who has been turned into a vampire.

This sets up an epic clash, with vampires travelling from around the world to join the Cullens in the struggle.

The cinema also screened Breaking Dawn Part 1 prior to the midnight screening, with most of the crowd opting to attend both and only a few turning up only for the midnight screening of the latest film.

The actors seem to have grown into their roles over the years and this was probably the best film since the first one,with the audience enjoying many of the in-jokes that have become familiar during that time.

At Maryborough Plaza 4 Cinemas, where a sellout crowd was expected, the double screening of Breaking Dawn Part 1 and Part 2.
