If you thought that Breaking Dawn: Part 1 was going to be your run-of-the-mill tween romance movie, think again. Director Bill Condon says that the blood and intensity of the upcoming Twilight film sets it apart from all the others.

Condon tells Box Office Magazine that he thought long and hard about how to handle the "very, very intense" scenes in the movie, adding that unlike a lot of the previous Twilight scenes, this one is "almost like a horror movie."

He goes on to say that he used David Cronenberg -- who's had a blast with blood and slicing on A History of Violence and Eastern Promises -- as a bit of a model on how to make things edgy while still maintaining a teen-safe rating for the film.

"I think within the confines of a PG-13 rating, I think we've got something that's pretty powerful," Condon said.

The PG-13 rating also had to stay in check with the passionate honeymoon scene, wherein Bella and Edward -- played by Kristin Stewart and Robert Pattinson -- participate in some pillow-maiming love. Here's everything you need to know about the steamy scenes:

So what else does he think fans will eat up in Dawn?

"There's a whole chunk where you get inside the head of a wolf," Condon says, referring to Jacob's (Taylor Lautner) character. Then he gets into the good stuff.

And in terms of the birth, it was, "Let's do it from Bella's point of view. Let's see whatever she can see." Once you decide on an approach like that, it's amazing how powerful you can be without being overly explicit. She gets glimpses of a lot of things—and hears everything—but it's not the cutaway to teeth clawing through flesh. But you certainly know what's happening.
Dawn comes out nationwide on November 18.

    Undeniably consider that which you said. Your favourite reason seemed to be at the internet the simplest thing to understand of. I say to you, I certainly get annoyed whilst people consider issues that they plainly don't recognise about. You controlled to hit the nail upon the highest and also defined out the entire thing without having side-effects , people could take a signal. Will likely be back to get more. Thanks

    I really liked New Moon, I think Chris did a pretty good job putting as much of the book into the movie (they also added Edward though he was not in nearly 90% of the movie,also New Moon is really sad. I've read all 4 books, Chris (I think did a better job that Catherine H did) Catherine H relied on alot of effects in Twilight, I love Twilight, but Chris stayed as close to New Moon as he could). bella98.OneGreatMovie.com.

    Great video piece. Pacing is sooo much better than the hurried-up, talk-too-fast other celeb sites on the net. Keeping the background music at a lower scale so we can hear you is verynice4, too! Great job Taryn and Celebuzz!
