FILM REVIEW: Miss Peregrine’s Home For Peculiar Children


Hi. Hope here!

This weekend I went to see a film I’ve really wanted too see for ages – Miss Peregrine’s Home For Peculiar Children. I have really wanted to see this, and I’m happy to say it was everything I hoped it would be!

My word for this film is “thrilling”. It’s a wee bit scary, funny, creepy, and packed full of action. I love the story and how it’s sad and creepy. The characters’ powers are awesome (Although I don’t think being full of bees is awesome!) and the powers I’d want the most are Fiona’s, Emma’s, Jake’s, and Miss Peregrines. I don’t want to tell you what any of those powers are in case it spoils any surprises for you, but they are really cool!


The story makes you shudder a bit (in a good way though) and the monsters, The Hollows, are sooooo creepy and disgusting. Β The costumes were so cool, especially Miss Peregrine’s (I want to dress up as her for Halloween!) and I loved Emma’s shoes – they were awesome!

The special effects seemed so real and yet unbelievable. Last night I had a dream about me being a peculiar – my power was healing. To be honest, I was quite upset when I woke up because i was actually enjoying my dream quite a lot. This film makes me want to watch it over and over again, all day.

My score out of 100 is………..

  1. Thanks for the brilliant review Hope. My wife Louise wants to see this film but I didn’t know if it would be any good. Now I’ve read your review I’m excited to see it πŸ™‚

  2. I’ve long suspected my brother might be filled with bees, and he is definitely not awesome, although I’m not sure whether that is the bees’ fault.

    Great review, Hope, thanks!

  3. Fantastic! I wasnt sure if I wanted to see this film but I am definitely going now. Looking forward to your next review.

  4. Hi Hope, do you think this film would be too scary for me if I’m five years old? My dad watched the trailer and says the baddies are quite scary.

  5. Thanks for the review. I really want to see this but my girlfriend doesn’t. I’ll show her your review and see try and convince her to go and see it.
