There are several Stephen King works alluded to in this episode. The farmer with the New England accent persuading Stephen Stotch not to bury "Butters" in the Indian burial ground is an allusion to Pet Semetary. Linda throwing herself into "her son's" grave is reminiscent of a scene in the book version of Salem's Lot. Additionally, a poster for I.T. (a parody of Steven Spielberg's E.T.) appears in the background of Heidi's basement.
In Heidi's basement near the stairway, there is a poster featuring "Twerpz" dolls, a spoof of the Bratz dolls.
Kevin mentioned that their plan to dress Butters up as a girl is similar to the plot of "Juwanna Mann", a 2002 film about a man who impersonates a female to play women's basketball.
Butters' epitaph reads "JESUS SAID 'COME UNTO ME ALL YE WHO LABOR AND ARE HEAVY LADEN AND I WILL GIVE YOU REST' MATT 11:28." This is the King James version of Matthew 11:28.
The side story with Stephen Stotch burying Butters' dead body in an Indian burial ground in order to resurrect him parodies the novel Pet Sematary.
The scene when Butters is knocking on his parent's door after he gets the device is an allusion to the short story called The Monkey's Paw.
The scene at the slumber party where the girls do "light as a feather, stiff as a board" is a direct reference to the 1996 horror film The Craft and the 1987 horror film The Gate. It has since become a common slumber party game.
