- Larry Davis's appearance and his philosophy of trash copulation is very clearly a nod to the Harmony Korine film Trash Humpers.
- The first scene with Arnold Shpitz, where he glares menacingly at Alex through a mesh fence in an abandoned building, is possibly a send-up to the introduction of Pyramid Head in Silent Hill 2.
- One of Jessie Mack's children, the one riding a tricycle, will recite some Kriss Kross lyrics when you talk to him.
- Joel's design is a mash-up of two characters from The Good, the Bad and the Ugly (specifically, Angel Eyes and El Topo).
