Director Bill Condon is fully prepared to receive bad reviews for the latest installment in the Twilight franchise, because "horror movies don't tend" to be favoured by critics.
The moviemaker has taken the helm of the vampire series to direct the final two-part movie, The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn, but he accepts the highly-anticipated conclusion might not receive much critical acclaim.
He tells reporters at the Comic-Con convention in California, "I don't think you can ever anticipate that... Horror movies don't tend to get the greatest reviews. Some of them do, classics, but a lot of them don't. So I think that comes with the territory."
However, Condon is adamant movie critics are not to blame, adding, "That's their job, to hold to their standards and their sense of movie history, and no, I have never thought there should be a correlation between success and how it does critically."
