ADVENTURE: Miss Peregrine's Peculiar Children is coming to the PEC Awards Daily

New film at PEC embraces the soul

A MYSTERIOUS new movie screening at Proserpine Entertainment Centre is sure to gather some interest.

Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children falls within the gothic and quirky theme of director Tim Burton's 2014 "Big Eyes.”

This horror-fantasy style of movie is both fanciful and pleasantly strange.

Adapted by Jane Goldman (2014's "Kingsman: The Secret Service”), the film perhaps doesn't always know what to do with all of its characters, but in taking a few visual cues from the illustrations of Edward Gorey, along with the monster design of H.P. Lovecraft, the film is exceptionally well designed without feeling as empty and soulless as an Alice in Wonderland-style of movie.

Young kids might not be quite ready for this yet, despite "children” being in the title of the film, but Burton sympathisers will easily discover this movie to be more engaging than most.

Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children screens at PEC on October 21-24.
