Several elements of this film inspired scenes in David Lynch projects. To begin with, there is the Twin Peaks (1990) sign at the beginning of the film which served as obvious inspiration for the title card and setting of Lynch's television series of the same name. Also, a scene or two later (the infamous "opening" scene,) when Kelly is in here garage, the killer mentions that he has "killed twice before" - this is something which "Bob," the supposed killer from "Twin Peaks" also mentions. This scene also has uncanny resemblances to a scene in Lynch's Wild at Heart (1990) where Willem Dafoe's character, Bobby Peru, has Lula Fortune in his filthy grasp and is talking to her similarly. Later in the film, we find out that the killer in "Experiment in Terror" is actually called Garland "Red" Lynch. The resemblance to David Lynch's name is something which the director no doubt noticed, as he also named a character in "Twin Peaks" after him (Major Garland Briggs).

There are official photos of President Eisenhower and President Kennedy in different government offices. However, this picture was filmed in 1961 (license plate stickers indicate as much), during a transition period from the Eisenhower to the Kennedy administration, so it is quite possible that there were portraits of both in some places. There were also some 48-star flags shown in some scenes; sometimes those in authority didn't get to making changes as quickly as today.
