A trend of "borrowing" throughout the serial comes to a head in this episode, most notably at the dinner scene, where the remains of a previous "guest" are served. The plot itself is also highly indebted: the victorian mansion conceals an alien ship, the lead alien has deviated from his mission objectives to fulfil his own selfish goals, and he ends up being usurped by his inferiors, as the ship takes off again. Also, numerous aesthetic similarities, including the bizarre manservant, evil maids, people turning to statues, cross-dressing, and the gothic / steampunk ambience.
The beginning of the first scary told in this movie is a reference to the 'Brad and Janet in the car scene passing by the castle)
In the first sketch, the scene when Villeret seeks shelter from the pouring rain at the hotel is a direct reference to the scene where Riff Raff opens the door to Brad & Janet. Later in the sketch, Charlotte de Turckheim's character looks a lot like Magenta.

Preformance of The Time Warp
In the "Rescue Dr. Frank N. Scott" mission, in which the Carnival of Shadows has captured a specialist with knowledge of magical rituals, the hostage's name is a combination of the movie's two doctors, Dr. Frank-N-Furter, and Dr. Everett Von Scott. As you approach the group of enemies from which you rescue Dr. Scott, his captors will claim they "already know that the ritual begins with a jump to the left... and then a step to the right." Finally, after rescuing Dr. Scott, he explains that "if they'd pried that ritual from me, it could have opened a time warp, or worse!"
This film has a scene similar to the one from ROCKY HORROR, where Brad, Janet, Dr. Scott, Frank N. Furter and Rocky Horror find each other in the laboratory (and utter each others' names).
