Miss Peregrine’s home for Peculiar Children

The DVD of Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children is being released soon. The film is based on the debut novel by American author Ransom Riggs. It tells the story of Jacob Portman who, as a child, listened to his grandfather Abraham’s stories about living with peculiar children in a special orphanage on a Welsh island, which is run by Miss Peregrine. However As Jacob grows older, he starts to doubt the stories. This changes after he visits his injured and dying grandfather and witnesses a strange, humanoid creature only he can see. Naturally No one believes Jacob when he tells them about an invisible monster with tentacle-like tongues. So 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. During another search of the orphanage, Jacob encounters a mysterious girl named Emma Bloom whom he attempts to follow.

Jacob is astounded to learn that everything his Grandfather was telling him Was in fact true, after he goes to Miss Peregrine’s orphanage and meets Emma Bloom, Millard Nullings, Bronwyn Bruntley who has amazing strength and Claire Densmore has a mouth at the back of her head. Emma and Millard tell Jacob they exist in a time loop, reliving the same day forever and that Miss Peregrine, who ran the Orphanage, is an Ymbryne who can create time loops. She also explains that hollowgasts and Wights, humanoid, tentacle-mouthed creatures like the one that killed Jacob’s grandfather, are a threat to all Ymbryne-run orphanages because they feed off the power from Peculiars.  Emma, Millard, Brownyn and Clare then introduce Jacob to Enoch O’Connor, who uses a heart from another creatures to temporarily restore life to Victor, who was killed by a hollowgast. Enoch also revives a deceased man named Martin who informs them that a wight killed him.

So they set off to rescue her. They discover the whereabouts of Miss Peregrine and Miss Avocet, another Ymbryne and find them trapped in a cage. So Jacob and Emma corner Dr. Golan in order To rescue Miss Peregrine and Miss Avocet. However the Wights intervene…
