* AdaptedOut: Barry's mother features prominently in the book, and Helen's parents have a couple of scenes too. Helen's father just appears as an extra, and Barry's mother is barely seen.



* AdaptationalKarma: Helen in the book suffers no negative consequences from the accident - and in fact gets a nice job as the local weather girl, making her able to afford a posh apartment (an impressive feat for a nineteen-year-old). In the film however Helen's attempts at becoming an actress have failed, and she's reduced to working in her parents' department store.
* AgeLift: Barry is a few years older than the gang in the book. Helen is a year above Julie too, who is still in high school. The film makes all the characters the same age.



* EyeAwaken: The man that protagonists ran over does right after Ray gets on front of his face underwater.

** [[spoiler: When Julie tells Helen about the note, there are a couple of shots of Elsa looking at them. Elsa is also said to have been in David Egan's class at school. In the book Elsa is also a suspect]].
** Max is initially assumed to be behind the note, as the only person the teens saw that night.
** [[spoiler: Missy is also introduced in a way that makes her seem like she could be a suspect too]].



--> "Get your white as death, chalky corpse in that car ''now''."
* SettingUpdate: The book was set in the 70s, and a plot point was one character being a Vietnam veteran. The film is updated to the 90s.



* TrueBlueFemininity: The dress that Helen wears in the Croaker Queen pageant is a light blue.

* WeUsedToBeFriends: After visiting Missy's house, Julie and Helen have this exchange in the car.
--> '''Helen:''' What ever happened to us? We used to be best friends.

* AdaptationalIntelligence: In the film Julie is said to have been an excellent student whose grades are slipping due to the trauma of the accident. It's the opposite in the book - where Julie was a slacker who had to really work hard to improve her grades after the accident.

* VillainBall: The Fisherman sure does pass up a lot of opportunities to kill those teens. Somewhat justified in the first movie, where his intent is not only to kill them, but to make them squirm and be afraid. Still, [[spoiler:Willis' quest for revenge threatens to expose his murder of David Egan, which he would've been clear of completely thanks to the teens]]. The second movie is arguably worse, where the Fisherman should know better by then not to mess around.
