Robert Pattinson: 'Breaking Dawn' is a horror movie

Robert Pattinson says Breaking Dawn is a horror movie

To hear it from Robert Pattinson, "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn" will be a lot more "Black Swan" than "Sweet Valley High." 

The heartthrob is in full swing promoting "Water For Elephants," which costars Reese Witherspoon, and dishing on the tone of the final two parts in the massive vampire franchise.

Pattinson confesses that "for a big mainstream movie, it's the most obscure storyline and really outside the box. It’s a horror movie." Director Bill Condon is at the helm.

With the "Twilight" team going darker, Pattinson wonders if the flick will score a PG-13 rating. 

"I've seen a few bits, and I just can't see how it’s going to be PG-13 ... unless they cut everything out," he said.

While he's thrilled with the filmmaking, he's eager to say goodbye to his trademark golden eyes -- specifically the contact lenses that give him the dreamy effect.

"It’s embarrassing for me -- after so many years, it's still a process every single morning. Everybody else has figured out how to do it, and then there's two people holding me down because I can't do it myself," he said.
