* The cyborg form that Digital Richmond becomes following [[spoiler: Lazarus' death]] is a clear homage to the RoboCop films - his chaingun and rocket-launcher are both based on RoboCop 2's weaponry and the mechanical noises of his legs and arms are all sampled from the films.

* Hawksmoor grabs Anna Steele, Lazarus' partner, in the AbsurdlySpaciousSewer beneath the high school, then pulls her straight up & out of sight. This is like the ambush scene in {{Alien}}s where a soldier suffers a similar fate.

* The Swamp Phantom, a giant naked, extremely well-muscled man, is a dead ringer for the Tyrant monsters in ''ResidentEvil 1'' and ''ResidentEvilCodeVeronica'', right down to the misshapen right hand.
** To be clear, in the ResidentEvil games the Tyrants have claw/clubs for a right hand. The Swamp Phantom is completely missing his right forearm and hand.
* Giant crocodile in the swamp could be a Shout Out to the giant crocodile in ''ResidentEvil2''.

* During the prison level, Lazarus Jones makes his way through an underground maze featuring steam-pipes that fire hot steam jets and giant spinning cogs. After completing the maze he emerges in a shower-room surrounded from above by gun-wielding ghost guards. This is very similar to the underwater Navy SEAL incursion sequence from the 1996 action film TheRock.
