Games Fiends writes, "In the wake of the blockbuster franchise that was Twilight a new theme has emerged in film. The “supernatural” teen drama. The City of Bones and Stephenie Meyers’ The Host will both be coming to theaters in the next year. In the wake of this trend emerges Beautiful Creatures. I went into the theater skeptical I was not a huge fan of the Twilight movies and the trailer for Beautiful Creatures seemed to be trying to rally the notorious Twi-hards. However, despite the inevitable melodrama I was pleasantly surprised by this film."
