Growing up I have always lived my life with a book in my hand. I was never without one and although I spent most of my time by myself I was never truly alone. I was always accompanied by the many characters that filled every page, and through them I was constantly in a battle between good and evil, trapped in a love triangle between lovers, and shaking with a beating heart in a dark corridor with someone lurking in the shadows. Although horror has never particularly been my favorite go to genre, there are some that I am most willing to read, during daylight of course.
Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children may not be a full horror novel like The Exorcist, but it still has its moments. With the main character searching for answers after his grandfather’s death, the protagonist is chased by haunting, chilling, vile creatures that lurk in the shadows that he is only able to see, and surrounded by children in an orphanage that are not “normal”. And with grim pictures to add to the reader’s imagination, this book screams to be made into a motion picture. Due to its dark and grim narrative the one and only Tim Burton, the father of dark, gothic films, will be making Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children into a movie.
With its release in September 2016, the public is sure to expect a grim tale on the silver screen. With eerie and disturbing visuals, this upcoming film will have audiences on the edge of their seat. Since the book, written by Ransom Riggs, is a young adult novel there are no gruesome parts making the book entertaining for everyone to enjoy. With mind disturbing visuals in the book, one can only imagine how the film will be presented. With an amazing cast from Samuel L. Jackson, Asa Butterfield, and Eva Green, Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children will be nothing short of a great Tim Burton film.
