Watch online Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children (2016). For years Abe Portman (Terence Stamp) has told stories to his Floridan grandson Jake (Asa Butterfield) about his childhood battling monsters and spending World War II living at “Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children” at Cairnholm, Wales. The home’s children and their headmistress, Miss Alma Peregrine (Eva Green), possess paranormal abilities and are known as “Peculiars”. After 16 year old Jake receives a phone call from his grandfather, he goes to his house with his drugstore superviser Shelly (O-Lan Jones) and finds him dying mysteriously, with his eyes missing, Abe tells Jake to go to “September 3, 1943”, before he dies.
Convinced by his psychiatrist, Dr. Golan (Allison Janney) and from a letter by Miss Peregrine to Abe, Jake and his father Frank (Chris O’Dowd) travel to Cairnholm, where Jake finds that the children’s home was destroyed during a Luftwaffe raid at “September 3, 1943”. At the house, the Peculiar children come out to greet him, startling Jake. They take him through a cave and he finds himself in 1943, when their house is still intact. Miss Peregrine greets him, who explains that she belongs to a class of female Peculiars named “Ymbrynes”, who transform into birds (in Miss Peregrine’s case, a peregrine falcon) and manipulate time. To avoid persecution for being Peculiars, she and her children hide from the outside world in a time loop she created, set to September 3, 1943, meaning that they all live the same day over and over again.
Jake is introduced to the rest of the children, including aerokinetic Emma Bloom (Ella Purnell), whom he is attracted to. He also learns about “Hollowgasts” (or “Hollows”) – monsters that are invisible to everyone. However, Jake learns he himself is a Peculiar; like his grandfather, he has the ability to see the Hollows. Hollows are Peculiars who were transformed by a failed experiment by using an Ymbryne’s powers to become immortals. Led by shapeshifter Mr. Barron (Samuel L. Jackson), they hunt Peculiars to consume their eyeballs. When enough eyeballs are consumed, the Hollows transform into milky-white eyed visible Peculiars known as “Wights”.
A wounded Ymbryne avocet bird named Miss Avocet (Judi Dench), comes and reveals (also by another letter from Abe to Miss Peregrine) that Barron raided her January 2016 time loop at Blackpool, England, killed her children and is trying to repeat his failed experiment by using more Ymbrynes. Worried, Miss Peregrine decides to move out with her children and Miss Avocet. While back in 2016, Jake realizes earlier that a Hollow might be nearby and goes back to the cave to warn his friends. He is followed by another visitor on the island, ornithologist John Lemmon (Rupert Everett), revealed to be Mr. Barron. Barron had tried to find out about Miss Peregrine’s loop from Abe, but his Hollow companion, Mr. Malthus (the one’s past self on the island), killed Abe before he could. Barron then posed as Dr. Golan, encouraging him to go to the island so Jake could guide him to the loop. Using Jake as a hostage at the children’s home, Barron forces Miss Peregrine to come with him to Blackpool (in her peregrine form) and leave Jake, her children and Miss Avocet for their own safety. Free online streaming Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children (2016). Malthus arrives and kills Miss Avocet, but Jake and the children escape just as the Luftwaffe raid destroys the house and kills Malthus. Without Miss Peregrine to reset it, the loop closes, leaving them permanently in 1943. They travel on a sunken ocean liner to the Blackpool loop and use their abilities to fight Barron’s Hollow and Wight minions and rescue Miss Peregrine and other captive Ymbrynes. As a last resort, Barron poses as Jake to confuse the children. When the last Hollow arrives, Jake, who can see the monster, is able to avoid him, and Barron is killed by him and killed in his turn by Jake.
Jake says goodbye to the children and returns to the present world at Florida, relating his adventures to Abe, who is alive and well: Malthus’ death in 1943 erased himself and his murder of Abe from the future (2016). Abe gives Jake a map of time loops, allowing Jake to reunite with his friends and Emma. The two kiss as Miss Peregrine (in peregrine form) follows them and all of her children in their own ship, looking for another time loop.
