* ShownTheirWork: The TortureCellar used in St. Matthew's Hospital to [[spoiler:cure Anna of possession]] is based on a spiritualist invention called a [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Psychomanteum Psychomanteum]], meant to be used for meditation to help one communicate with the spirits of the dead. At the same time it's an InUniverse example of DidNotDoTheResearch since Dr. Kane not only didn't consider what might happen if such a room were used on someone who was possessed, he didn't build it properly. [[note]]The mirrors are supposed to be angled in such a way as to reflect nothing but darkness, and the lighting is supposed to be very dim to facilitate this; the bright lighting and array of vertical mirrors were intended to force the person in the chamber to "confront themselves", but that is completely against both the original use of such a room and [[spoiler:Anna]]'s problem. Even aside from him not understanding or believing in the real explanation for her condition, however, the simple fact a man of science was attempting to use a spiritualist concept would probably explain why he either didn't do the research or deliberately altered what he learned.[[/note]] This may explain why matters did not turn out well, to put it mildly, although even if it had been done right, trying to communicate with the spirit realm while suffering DemonicPossession probably would not have had happy results anyway.
