This Spoils the Ending
In the Book In the Movie
   The conch is eventually shattered when Piggy is killed. The conch is not shown being destroyed.
   Piggy always refers to his aunt when we first meet him piggy doesn't refer to his aunt at all but his grandmother and that happened only at least once or twice
   Jack has red hair and is the leader of the group of choir boys. He is blond and is a Cadet from the military school.
   The pilot of a jet plane is found in the cave. He is believed to be the beast. The pilot was with the boys when they crashed. He was delusional and escaped and went to the cave. He died there and the boys eventually found his body.
   Simon loses him mind and when he sees the severed Pig's head it talks to him and he sees it as the Lord of the Flies. Simon only stares at the head while the buzzing of the flies gets progressively louder.

If you know a difference, don't comment, Add it above!
It reminds me of the movie "The Mist" in some events. A Group breaking up and the ending.

actually Ralph also said he was the boss when the officer came. Ralph is more insulting in the book than the movie.
