This Spoils the Ending
In the Book In the Movie
   The Lutzes discover a hidden red room in the basement while moving shelves, as the entrance was hidden behind one. The red room has no entrance; the Lutzes discover it by tearing down a wall in the basement.
   The Lutzes see red eyes peering at them through the living room window, and find cloven hoofprints in the snow leading to the window the next day. Kathy sees red eyes peering at her through Amy's window. There are no footprints as Amy's room is on the second floor and there was no snow.
   The hidden red room was very small, almost more like a closet. The hidden red room was rather large.
