The red and green plants at the end of the hallway are a reference to the red and green herbs in the Resident Evil series of video games. I was always a big fan of Resident Evil, at least the earlier games, anyway… I sort of lost interest after the releases on the Nintendo GameCube.
Orneryboy is singing Morrissey’s song “Everyday is Like Sunday” as he walks past room 312. Room 312 is another reference to Silent Hill 2 (Again, Lalonde? Geez!). Pretty much anytime there’s an opportunity for me to turn an otherwise meaningless detail into an obscure reference to something I like, I’ll usually take it.
I won’t talk about the mummy yet, because I don’t want to spoil it!
