  • In the book, Jerry and Terri found the dog skeleton in the forest. In the episode, they find it on the beach.
  • The ending is slightly extended to imply that Brad and Agatha will eat Harrison's dog.
  • The opening dream sequence is removed.
  • The episode mentions Harrison earlier on, as they find a gravestone with his name and Sam & Louisa tell them that Harrison Sadler is the ghost haunting the cave, while in the book he was not introduced until they meet him.
