Expect a gaggle of tween girls at the King of Prussia mall today, and not because wide-leg jeans and pencil skirts are on sale. The stupendously cute Robert Pattinson, star of the new vampire movie, Twilight, and inciter of teen hysteria and a near-riot at a San Francisco mall this week, is scheduled to make an appearance. The mall expected fans to start lining up at midnight to get a chance to meet Pattinson, just as they did elsewhere on his nationwide mall tour to promote the movie, which will open Nov. 21. Those who aren't up to speed on the vampire/mortal saga should know this: The books by Stephenie Meyer have sold nearly 17 million copies, mostly to preteen and teenage girls who love the dashing and devoted Edward Cullen.

The "Twilight" franchise has kept fans riveted through three films now. And things are about to get interesting. So far, the story of teenager Bella Swan and her vampire boyfriend, Edward Cullen, has been tame: occasional violence, never sex. But "Breaking Dawn," the final book in Stephenie Meyer's popular series, veers into territory so extreme that even faithful readers were shocked. "Breaking Dawn" created a controversy that went largely unnoticed upon its release in August 2008, a few months before the first film generated widespread mania.

Jason Friedberg and Aaron Seltzer have perfected the craft of film parodies through their "Scary Movie," "Date Movie," "Epic Movie" and "Disaster Movie. " That's why their latest work, "Vampires Suck," is such a dead-on send-up of the "Twilight" films. The writers/directors have condensed "Twilight," "New Moon" and "Eclipse" into a nonstop assault on teen angst, sexy bodies and gloomy settings.

Something about Bella Swan brings out the sexy beast in boys - likewise their gallantry. In New Moon, the fever-dream sequel to Twilight (its official title is The Twilight Saga: New Moon), the intense brunette wonders whether a rebound beau's bark is worse (or better) than her first love's bite. At first, Bella (angst princess Kristen Stewart) gets dumped by beloved Edward (passion prince Robert Pattinson), because Vampire Boy can't trust himself around her. Then good chum Jacob (studmuffin Taylor Lautner)

It won't be long now before teens across the globe take to the streets in sackcloth and ashes in mourning over Kristen Stewart's swan dive from media grace. K-Stew, whose romance with Twilight costar Robert Pattinson has helped us keep at bay the horrors of a world engulfed in poverty, war, and famine, admitted this week that she had engaged in what she called a "momentary indiscretion" with her married Snow White and the Huntsman director, Rupert Sanders. The fallout has been shocking: Fans, for the most part teenage girls, have unleashed a fury of disappointment and outrage, a wave of hysteria not seen since Sigmund Freud set up shop in Vienna.

The Twilight Saga: Eclipse - the third installment in the supernatural sexual-abstinence series that pits hot-blooded werewolves against cold-blooded vampires, with mopey-blooded Bella Swan in between - begins with a poem. It's Robert Frost's "Fire and Ice," and Bella (Kristen Stewart) recites it, splayed in a field of violets alongside her pallid beau, Edward Cullen (Robert Pattinson). "Some say the world will end in fire," she says, "some say in ice. From what I've tasted of desire I hold with those who favor fire . . . . " And that's as good (very good)

He doesn't sparkle in the sunlight - he's plastic. He can't hunt for prey - he's immobile. And he's only 17 inches tall - not exactly a towering Byronic presence. Still, for some fans of Stephenie Meyer's immensely popular Twilight series, the Edward Cullen doll by Tonner is the next best thing to the books' vampiric hero. The high-end dollmaker, known for its realistic figures based on popular movie characters, saw sales hit a record high with its first Edward doll, released in 2009.

A tidal wave of hysteria swept through the King of Prussia Plaza last night as throngs of teenage girls - and some of their mothers - jockeyed for position in hopes of seeing a movie heartthrob. They had traveled from as far as Florida to cross paths with Robert Pattinson, the British hunk with a lead role in Twilight, the soon-to-be-released vampire movie. It's based on the popular four-book series by Stephenie Meyer chronicling the relationship between 17-year-old high school student Bella Swan and her bloodsucking boyfriend.

Hear about the fans who stormed Robert Pattinson last week at a San Francisco galleria? OMG! In the rush to glimpse the guy who plays Edward Cullen, vampire hero of Twilight, one teen broke her nose. Another fainted. Or about the 500 Pattinson devotees in front of the Apple Store in New York's SoHo who chased the actor down Prince Street? Or about the 7-year-old inside the store who shyly approached Pattinson before bluntly asking him to bite her neck? And how about that uproar at King of Prussia last Thursday when the 22-year-old Brit was greeted by a teen army of more than a thousand screamingshriekingsquealing Twi-hards?
