Added DiffLines:

* TheCorruptible: Jim's [[FearlessFool recklessness]], [[RebelliousSpirit rebelliousness]], [[TheUnfettered disregard for the rules]] and desperation to grow up make him far more vulnerable than NiceGuy Will.


Added DiffLines:

* EvilIsCool: Invoked - Jim certainly thinks so, and Mr. Dark plays it up as much as possible. The cool factor is just another lure.


Added DiffLines:

* IJustWantToBeSpecial: Downplayed with the three protagonists. Jim can't wait to grow up and enjoy the sense of freedom he's convinced it will bring. Will wants Jim's single-minded and [[TheStoic Stoic]] drive. Charles had wasted a large portion of his life ''trying'' to be what he considered "special"; now, he just wants to be young again like Will and Jim. [[spoiler: Will and Charles get over this and accept themselves well before the climax. Jim... [[TheCorruptible doesn't]].]]

Added DiffLines:

* AdaptationDeviation: A few plot points have been changed, but since the screenplay was written by Bradbury himself, the changes were pragmatic. (For example, the idea of putting a smile on a bullet would have been too goofy for a film.)

* AndIMustScream: The Dust Witch "sews up" (it's actually invisible magic) Jim Nightshade's and Will Halloway's eyes, mouth, and ears. They're still aware of their surroundings, but they can't see, hear, speak, [[EyeScream blink]], or swallow.

Added DiffLines:

* AdaptationalAttractiveness: Pam Grier was cast as the Dust Witch, so they made the character into a beautiful and glamorous HotWitch instead of the stranger, creepier looking character of the novel.
