* ShoutOut: When the men in part I arrive at the hostel, ''Film/PulpFiction'' is playing on the television in the lobby. The Hostel movies were produced by Quentin Tarantino, who directed Pulp Fiction. Also, [[spoiler:Paxton seeing Natalya, Svetlana, and Alexi in the road - and running them over with his car - references Butch running over Marcellus Wallace.]]
** The use of Willow's Song from ''Film/TheWickerMan'' is also an ominous bit of foreshadowing.
