What are your choices?

Christine killing Darnell in his house

How Moochie died in the book.

Leigh choking in the book

Christine at the airport
Leigh does choke in the movie -- in the car at the drive-in. I may be missing your meaning. It's been a long time since I read the book.

And welcome to the board.

Yeah in the novel Leigh and Arnie were both in Christine when Leigh choked. They picked up a hitchhiker too. Who saved her. Arnie did nothing.


The dreams would be good too in film form.

I liked the scene in the book where Christine breaks down (a flat? Can't remember) and they have a funny confrontation with a family in their yard. I see why this extraneous scene would've been skipped over, though.

Been a long time since I've read the book too, but I remember reading a part where it's middle of the night (snowing?) and Dennis looks out of his window and Christine is idling in front of his house, with no driver. Goosebump raising stuff for a kid reading it in 1983.
