Differences between the book and movie

  • Henry Niles and Janice Hedden never meet in the book. Hedden suffers from exposure in the snow, while Niles has murdered three girls before the novel began.
  • Janice Hedden is a mentally-disabled eight-year-old girl, not a teenager with a fancy for David Sumner or Henry Niles.
  • David and Amy Sumner (in the film) are named George and Louise Magruder, respectively, in the novel.
  • George and Louise have an eight-year-old daughter, Karen, in the novel.
  • In the novel, none of the besiegers die. Instead, they are badly injured and face charges.
  • In the novel, Charles Venner is not related to the Heddens and does not besiege the house. He is married and never was in love with Louise.
  • There are no rapes in the novel.
