Also uses the same knife as the baddie in Cobra.. which was directed by his dad.I liked the ambiguity and symbolism of Mandy. Cage being stabbed in the side with the spear tip, having his hand nailed to the floor and being bound in barbed wire (thorns) are obvious biblical references. The bikers could be genuinely demonic or just whacked out on acid. The line about the mystic in the water at the end. The imagery in general. Cheddar Goblin was sick too. The nods to other films: Friday 13th, Hatchet, Gremlins, Hellraiser, Se7en etc etc.
