There's a scene after Jesse and Lisa head to school not in the film. (It may have happened in the film version of the story, but it at least wasn't shown.)

The PE scene was left out. (It may have still happened.)

Jesse Walsh going to Don's Place isn't described. However, the book doesn't say he didn't go there or that it doesn't exist in this version of the A Nightmare on Elm Street story.

Jesse Walsh/Freddy Krueger killing Schneider isn't described, but the events right before it are. However, Jesse later says he killed Schneider, plus it was obvious that he/Freddy did even before he said he did, so this technically doesn't qualify as a difference from the film.

Differences in plot from the film[]

The noise level on the bus is described as "deafening". While there was SOME noise on the bus in the film, it was no where close to this.

It is implied that Jessie didn't scream when he woke up.

Jesse slams his hand on the alarm clock.

Jesse doesn't call his car "the deadly dinosaur".

Instead of saying that Ron Grady is "full of shit", Jesse says that Ron Grady is "full of it".

Jesse takes Lisa to McDonald's.

After McDonald's, Jesse takes Lisa to school.

An old newspaper newspaper issue ACTUALLY REPORTED Freddy Krueger being set on fire by the vigilante mob.

Lisa suggests driving out to the beach.

There's no mention of the mutant rat and cat in the boiler room.

The line, "He'll die with both of us." is ommitted.
