Movie Review



What wikipedia about the movie: Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children is a 2016 American 3D dark fantasy film directed by Tim Burton and written by Jane Goldman, based on the 2011 novel of the same name by Ransom Riggs. The film stars Eva Green, Asa Butterfield, Chris O’Dowd, Allison Janney, Rupert Everett, Terence Stamp, Ella Purnell, Judi Dench and Samuel L. Jackson.

For years, Abe Portman (Terence Stamp) has told stories to his grandson Jake (Asa Butterfield) about his childhood battling monsters and spending World War II living at “Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children” at Cairnholm, Wales. The home’s children and their headmistress, Miss Alma Peregrine (Eva Green), possess paranormal abilities and are known as “Peculiars”.

His parents take him to Dr. Golan, a psychiatrist, who suggests that Jacob go to Wales, the location of his grandfather’s orphanage. Jacob finds the orphanage deserted, so he seeks information from the local people, including workers at the Cairnholm Museum.  (Thanks Wikipedia)

What I Thought: From the opening credits, I knew that this is a horror. The hollows and wights photos give a big hint of what is to come in the movie. When Jake first finds his grandpa without eyes I got super creeped out, when he finds the old lady in a wheelchair without eyes I got super creeped out. When there wasn’t a hollow about to kill you, there was some beautiful moments like when they go into the boat for the first time and the ending too (but I won’t spoil that by telling you).

The special effects were amazing and the storyline was great. My favourite character was Emma because air power would be amazing and she had an amazing wardrobe to go with it.  Love those shoes!!

This is a movie you would want to rent and watch at home if you are easily creeped out. Please comment what you liked and who is your favourite character.

Score: 3/5 cowbells (There were five main events and 2 of them were super creepy, the grandpa part and the big fight part)

My recommended age range: 12+ years old

Released: September 2016
