    • Spike's treatment is very similar to the 1971 film A Clockwork Orange based on the novel of the same name by Anthony Burgess. The story follows a young man who ruthlessly rapes and assaults strangers until he is given "the Ludovico treatment" which renders him unable to harm anyone without feeling physically ill, just like Spike feeling pain whenever he tries to hurt others.
