IF YOU see some sad but contented faces outside the cinema in the early hours of Thursday morning, it may just be because the fifth and final film in the Twilight franchise has finally been released. 

The movie will follow the story of Edward and Bella as she embraces her new life as a mother, wife and vampire.

The film's events lead the Cullens to gather fellow vampire clans to stand up to the Volturi once and for all. 

It will be a bitter sweet occasion for lovers of the hit book and film series, but it might not be the end of supernatural heart throbs on the big screen. 

Twihards suffering from a serious case of withdrawal might be able to find comfort in a totally different movie monster when zombie romance Warm Bodies is released next year. 

The movie is set in a post-apocalyptic America that has been destroyed by wars and natural disasters, resulting in a zombie plague.

A zombie, known only as R, decides to save a living human woman, Julie, rather than killing her, with an unlikely romance forming between the two. 

Has our onscreen obsession with new-age metro monsters gotten out of hand, or is it all part of cinematic imagination and fun?
