** Even more FridgeHorror when you consider that [[spoiler: the entire invasion and the carnage coming along with it]] is the ''exact'' personification of Britain's greatest fear at the beginning of WorldWarOne-the soldiers of ImperialGermany finally charging into England and burning whole cities to the ground, committing atrocity after atrocity on every civilian visible as the government lies helpless. And yet even moreso when you consider that it's very much a toned-down version of [[spoiler: the Rape of Nanking]].

** Even worse if you consider some of the imagery in the game metaphorical to or referring the horrors of the 20th century. A meticulous collection of useless body parts and personal affectations from those who then went on to be sadistically butchered sounds disturbingly like descriptions of Japanese and German scientists' wartime vivisection foibles during World War II.

* The reoccurring painting of a woman wearing a crazed expression on her face, brandishing a knife besides her head and carrying a baby in her lap (if it ''is'' a baby at all). An infant leg is seen sticking out of a cauldron next to her.

** FridgeHorror makes this even worse; considering [[spoiler: how one of the overarching themes of the game is the dark nightmares of the twentieth century and the horrors of particularly WorldWarOne. Having a huge section of London's capital gutted could cause all kinds of problems in the face of less benevolent powers like ImperialGermany, in addition to demonstrating publicly how Alexander's tools could be used by normal humans.]] Mandus, did you just [[spoiler: make the 20th century even more horrifying than it was?!?]]

-->'''THE MACHINE:''' [[spoiler:And you came then to London and you set '''me''' upon a mantelpiece and then you went into the house and gathered the servants and '''we''' set, '''you and I''', on re-crafting them and then you went into the garden and buried those tiny shattered skulls. Alone.]]

* The various journal entries you can find around the factory contain a few textual gems as well, such as a man's head revived with vitae and immediately freaking out about his missing body, a poisoned dog suffering even after it has been revived, and a first person description of a man undergoing the process of being turned into a Manpig.

* It's clear from the very beginning that the Machine is an industrial slaughterhouse. But for much of the game, you are exploring the engines and boilers that make the factory work, not the slaughtering floor itself. It isn't until the very end that you reach the Pigline, where you see [[spoiler: not pigs, but dozens of human carcassas suspended by meat hooks and sliced by enormous mechanical butchers. The sheer scope of the slaughter going on is made apparent in the Tripery, where you see ground human flesh pushed through pipes like sausage, and are forced to wade through an ''ocean of blood and body parts''.]]

* One of monsters nicknamed "[[FanNickname Mr. Piggy]]", it looks like some sort of mix between [[BodyHorror human and a pig]]. It produces a loud noises whenever it's around, and is capable running [[LightningBruiser really fast]], being able to catch up with you quickly.

* [[spoiler:The electric pig scenes. ''Oh god the electric pig scenes.'' You enter a room full of floor-to-ceiling tubes and the lights go out. Then you hear a crackle of electricity . . . and a ''Manpig covered in blue sparks starts lumbering toward you.'' This is all in near-total darkness. You have to turn the lights back on to escape.]]
