  • Peter might be the successor to serial killer Ben.
    • Though Peter is far more evil and chaotic than Ben.
  • Judging by Peter's personality, he possibly killed the cameraman from the first film, explaining why he is not present in the sequels.
  • Peter and his friends are strangely similiar to the real life serial killers, Dnepropetrovsk Maniacs. Both use bludgeoning with a hammer as their main MO, both killed pregnant women and cut off their fetus and both are snuff filmers, the maniacs are responsible for creating the infamous 3 Guys 1 Hammer. They are also both a subset of murderer known as a "thrill killer", who commit murder for no reason other than amusement (making them among the most hated of all criminal types).
