Dark Moments From The Book That Didn't Make It Into 'Jurassic Park'

List Rules
Vote up the elements of Michael Crichton's novel you're glad didn't make it into Spielberg's blockbuster movie.

Jurassic Park is a landmark in cinema history - and still holds up more than 25 years after its initial release. Though often considered among the best book-to-film adaptations of all time, it does feature massive departures from the source material. Steven Spielberg did an amazing job crafting a sci-fi adventure film - with some elements of horror - but when it comes to the Jurassic Park movie vs. book, the book is actually much darker. 

Some of the goriest events were seriously toned down for the movie or even removed completely. Other disturbing sequences of human-on-dino action were also cut or watered down for the finished product. The novel offers little in the way of catharsis - and boasts a body count much higher than what we see on screen. 

Here are the most notable Jurassic Park book scenes that film audiences have never seen.
