In the Book In the Movie
   Annie cuts off one of Paul's feet with an axe, and later a thumb. She breaks his feet with a sledgehammer.
   A state trooper shows up looking for Paul. Annie stabs him with a sharpened cross and runs over him with the lawnmower. It is the sheriff and Annie shoots him with a shotgun.
   Paul pretends to set fire to the novel, but it is really a stack of papers. He really sets fire to the novel.
   After Paul hits her with the typewriter, she gets him down and runs to find a weapon, but trips on the typewriter, causing her to crack her skull on the mantelpiece. Mortally wounded, she exits the house through a window and goes to the barn to get a chainsaw to kill Paul, but she finally succumbs to her head injury and dies in the barn. Paul trips Annie, causing her to land head-first on the typewriter. Annie lunges at him but he strikes her over the head with a small steel pig statue, killing her.
