In a showdown of man versus machine, Martin plunges into a chaotic nightmare trying to save his mind from the megalomaniacal corporation.
Dr. Rex Martin (Bill Pullman) mentioned that he went to "Miskatonic University", the college where Re-Animator (1985) took place. Miskatonic University is supposedly located in Arkham, Massachusetts, a fictional town created by H.P. Lovecraft.
Dr. Rex Martin:
Just remember, Hal, that just because you're paranoid doesn't mean they aren't out to get you.
Dr. Martin advertises his brain surgery method by comparing it to a lobotomy, even showing a gruesome movie of Walter Freeman doing his infamous "icepick lobotomy". The lobotomy practice damaged the reputation of psycho surgery severely, so there is no reason why a serious scientist would deliberately compare his work to that. Then again, it works fine for a horror movie.
