In the novel, the Hollowgasts are usually just called Hollows, while the evolved Hollows are called Wights. In the second book, the leader of a group of paramilitary Wights goes by the name Mr. White, a homophone. See more »
There are 3 piers stretching out into the sea in Blackpool, North, Central and South, but none of them are directly in front of the Blackpool Tower. The closest one is North Pier which is around a quarter of a mile away. See more »
Very different from the books and just a major disappointment
My daughter and I had read the books. Fans will be disappointed because the film deviates from the original story so much, it is surprising this is called an adaptation. The peculiar children as an example were not all portrayed as written and some were even missing. My daughter kept asking why this child or that child were not there? Miss Peregrine is also not portrayed as she was in the book. I could go on and on.
Acting fell very flat and characters were void of emotion except for one scene where Miss Peregrine shows sadness. Jake in the book is humorous and sarcastic but also had some serious feelings to contend with about tough choices. Absolutely none of this was translated to film.
The ending was confusing, entire story rushed, and anti-climatic.
Also, for 3D lovers, there is almost no 3D effects. There are some at the very beginning which were great, but then the rest was like watching a regular 2D film!
Save your money for the DVD or Netflix!
