Films Alluded to in Deadly PremonitionEdit
- When Francis York Morgan is being driven back to the hotel after defeating Forrest Kaysen, he apparently sees Emily Wyatt, he tells the driver to stop and investigates. This is similar to the ending of Batman Returns where Bruce Wayne seems to see Catwoman and gets out of the car to look for her.
- When York looks at a photo of the town's founding in the Great Deer Yard Hotel, he sees Kaysen in the crowd and realizes Kaysen was alive and looked the same back then. This is similar to a scene in 12 Monkeys where Dr. Kathryn Railly sees James Cole in a photo from the second World War. It is also similar to the ending of The Shining, where it is revealed that Jack was alive in 1921.
