When it comes to the "Twilight" franchise, some of us humbly count ourselves among the faithful. But as much as we may be looking forward to the next story detailing the lives of a few lovelorn vampires, there are those in our ranks who are taking it just a little too far.

KTLA reports that a tent city has popped up at downtown's Nokia Theater, full of people who are waiting to see the premiere of "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 1," which will take place on Monday.

Just to be clear, that's four days from now.

Their actions might be justifiable by the promise of meeting one of the "Twilight" actors. In years gone by, the likes of KStew and RPattz have shown up to thank their fans for being such nutjobs showing such devotion:

At the premieres of previous 'Twilight' films, the stars made personal appearances to thank their diehard fans. "You meet the actors who play your favorite characters, you get autographs... My sister and I have done it for the last three years now," one excited fan told KTLA.

Summit Entertainment, which produced the film, is providing activities for the campers over the next few days, including such unexpected goings-on as screenings of past "Twilight" movies.

The film will premiere on Monday, and will open in theaters across the country on Friday.
