Eight Forty-Eight

'Breaking Dawn' embraces campy premise

First comes the white wedding in the woods, then the sultry honeymoon on an island off of Rio De Janeiro, then, the sudden and life-threatening pregnancy.

Major bummer dudes! That is the set up of The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn-Part 1, the latest installment in the human-vampire love fest.

To find out how the teen vamps, werewolves and humans made the transition to adulthood, Eight Forty-Eight was joined by Christy LeMaster, who runs the Nightingale Theatre and teaches at Columbia College Chicago.

DJ Pick: Glenn Underground, "Somebody Scream" (Casual Records)
