Creepy but exciting Burton fantasy based on best-seller.
What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that director Tim Burton's Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children is based on the first book in Ransom Riggs' spine-tingling, best-selling gothic trilogy. It definitely shares some of the book's complex content and themes, including death and the yearning to belong. That, plus the movie's overwhelming feeling of creepiness, make it too intense for younger kids. There are also battle scenes with weapons (explosives, arrows, and more), mayhem, and death. It's not especially gory, but the tone is pretty dark. There's talk of a dead child, and a key character is shown on the ground, bloodied and dead. The main character loses a family member. The evil characters are very menacing: They eat other creatures to survive, and characters are shown eating eyeballs. But running underneath the creepy stuff is the message that being different doesn't make you a misfit -- just unique and gifted in your own way. And characters demonstrate courage, curiosity, and integrity.
