Added DiffLines:

* NoDeadBodyPoops: Averted. One of the killers begs to be allowed to use the bathroom before his hanging because he doesn't want this to happen. His executioners tell him it's going to happen anyway--"They all do it."

Added DiffLines:

* ForWantOfANail: The daughter's friend turning down her invitation to spend the night undoubtedly saved her life.
* GoryDiscretionShot: The Clutter daughter turns out her lamp. . .and the next thing we see are their friends arriving to pick them up for church. All we hear is one of them screaming upon discovering the bodies.
** Even when it flashes back to the murders, we hear the gunshots, but never see the results.

Added DiffLines:

* PetTheDog: The two killers genuinely bond with the little boy and his grandfather who they pick up, stopping to gather bottles, singing with him, and even fairly splitting the profits from the bottle collection.

* ShownTheirWork: The film was shot at the actual locations, including the actual Clutter house. The pictures on the walls are pictures of the real Clutters.
