    Allusions (11)

    • CSI: The montage where the policeman researches the "left hand problem" is a reference to the TV show "CSI", which makes frequent uses of such montages. The South Park spoof also has techno music playing in the background, just like on CSI.

    • Wright Brothers: Orville and Redenbacher is a parody of the Wright Brothers Orville and Wilbur Wright, as well as a plan on Orville Redenbacher, the popcorn magnate.

    • Scanners: The psychic battles are from the film "Scanners", famous for its head explosion. It is also worth noting both "Scanners" and "The Dead Zone" are directed by David Cronenberg.

    • Ed Gein: The allusions to "Silence of the Lambs," "Psycho," and "Red Dragon" are all in and of themselves, and the serial killer in this episode are all allusions to real life serial killer Ed Gein. Who upon his arrest police raided his house and found many gruesome things, such as cups made from skulls, a belt made from human nipples, lamp shades made from skin, and a female body suit. The house scene in this episode is a clear reference to Ed Gein and his house.

    • Silence of the Lambs: The killer is also similar to Buffalo Bill from Silence of the Lambs because he dresses like a woman and of the pictures of women. In Silence of the Lambs, Buffalo Bill wore dresses and the skin of women he had killed.
