However you cope, you might want to remember how much fun you’ve had over the past few years, as each of the preceding films opened.

First there was “Twilight,” which “works as both love story and vampire story, thanks mainly to the performances of its principals,” wrote Michael O’Sullivan in his 2008 review.

Next came “New Moon” and O’Sullivan’s 2009 review, which rewarded the flick with 2.5 stars. “The performances are uniformly strong, especially by Stewart,” he wrote. “Despite melodrama that, at times, is enough to induce diabetes, there’s enough wolf whistle in this sexy, scary romp to please anyone.”

Ann Hornaday gave “Eclipse” 3 stars in 2010, saying it would satiate thirsty fans who will “most likely feel well rewarded by this respectful, unfussy installment of their beloved ‘Twilight’ series.”

Finally, Mark Jenkins called “Breaking Dawn” a “yawn” in his 2011 review. So what awaits with “Breaking Dawn — Part 2”? Watch this space, Twihards. Just like Edward and Bella, Michael O’Sullivan is back with the final say on Thursday.
