* HammerAndSickleRemovedForYourProtection: The enemy in the war is never named. Given the time the book was written, it was probably intended to be the Soviet Union, but a modern reader might be equally tempted to assume [[MakeTheBearAngryAgain modern Russia]], [[UsefulNotes/RedChina China]], or even [[UsefulNotes/NorthKorea]].

Added DiffLines:

* AdaptationalAlternateEnding: [[spoiler:The film ends with Ann and Loomis deciding to carry on living together without yet looking for other survivors.]]
* AdaptationDecay: The film removes the cat-and-mouse nature of Ann and Loomis's relationship (as well as the latter's increasingly villainy) in favor of more of a LoveTriangle with a post-apocalyptic backdrop.


Added DiffLines:

* AgeLift: Ann is a teenager in the novel, but a grown woman in the film.


Added DiffLines:

* BolivianArmyEnding: [[spoiler:The novel ends with Ann venturing out of the valley and into the radiated zone, looking for other survivors. She's hopeful about her fate and has a dream of her teaching that ''may'' be DreamingOfThingsToCome, but it's equally likely that she'll become sick and die, just as the rest of the population, as well as her own family, did.]]


Added DiffLines:

* ConvenientlyAnOrphan: In the books, Ann is orphaned after her family likely dies while investigating further out; her being AloneWithThePsycho wouldn't be nearly as effective with a family around.


Added DiffLines:

* DownerEnding: [[spoiler:The film. Loomis [[KarmaHoudini gets away with likely]] [[KillTheHypoteneuse killing Caleb]], with Ann apparently none the wiser. Having no other alternatives, and despite having stronger feelings for Caleb, she stays with Loomis and the two apparently start a new life together.]]


Added DiffLines:

* KarmaHoudini: [[spoiler:If Loomis did kill Caleb, he's this by the end, living with Ann with no more competition, and with her apparently none the wiser of his deeds.]]
* KillTheHypoteneuse: [[spoiler:Implied with Caleb.]]


Added DiffLines:

* LoveTriangle: Between Ann, Caleb, and Loomis in the film.

* AdaptationExpansion: The 2015 film introduces a third survivor, a man named Caleb.



* PartingWordsRegret: Sort of. Ann's last words to Loomis before she leaves for good are that he never even thanked her for taking care of him, something she thinks back on later as being "childish" of her.

There was a BBC made-for-tv movie in 1984, and a big screen adaption is planned for 2015. The first trailer can be viewed [[https://youtu.be/5k5tlNHUCj0 here]], but it suggests a very loose adaptation.
