I would write more, but it would take too long, I am too tired - I will get around to this
I hate the ending in the film - it was way too 'Hollywood' for my liking, regardless of how horrific. Of course they had to change the ending for the film because many people would have been annoyed, but the unknown works better in my opinion.
Overall I thought they kept the main story fairly close to the novella, however I found they 'dumbed' it down a bit, by giving away too much.
