* ViewersAreMorons: There are quite a few glaring examples when compared to the source material. Any difficult names are dumbed down (Whittlesey becomes Whitney, Kawakita becomes Lee), the monster Mbwun and the tribe that controlled it, The Kothoga, are combined into one term. ** And if you didn't get it five minutes ago when we told you he's afraid of black cats, we'll remind you now that D'Agosta is superstitious by having him refuse to pick up a penny wrong-side-down, and five minutes from now when we tell you about his lucky bullet.

Reminder that "Eldritch abomination" is not just a general term for "monster"
* IndyHatRoll: Panicked party guests try to flee the museum as the security doors are activated. Some don't make it and are caught and crushed by the steel doors. Seeing as what the rest were [[EldritchAbomination trapped with]], they were probably the lucky ones.

** The Kothoga encounters a dog, but ignores it because it doesn't have a suitable hypothalamus to consume.

Added DiffLines:
* PoliceAreUseless: The SWAT team sent in are immediately picked off one by one by the Kothoga. None of them even attempt to shoot it and [[TooDumbToLive apparently sending them in one at a time is not a good idea.]]

Added DiffLines:
* AdaptedOut: Pendergast was cut from the film, though some of his characteristics were merged with D'Agosta. Smithback isn't as lucky to even afford that (somewhat fitting in a meta sense, [[TheChewToy considering his character]]) and his role is completely absent.

Added DiffLines:
* AdaptationalAttractiveness: In the original novel D'Agosta was in his late 50's and very out of shape and overweight (although in later books in the Pendergast series he does get back into shape and slim down a little). In the film, he's a lot slimmer and in his mid 30's.

** With a slow zoom on the reefer he was smoking in the restroom as he's mauled off-screen, no less. DrugsAreBad, folks.

* GenderFlip: Dr. Ian Cuthbert from the original novel becomes Ann Cuthbert.

Added DiffLines:
* SparedByTheAdaptation: Although Cuthbert didn't die in the original book, he was DrivenToMadness by the end. The version here fares a lot better.
