-Quaid's parents were murdered by an axe murderer when he was a child. He saw this and this would probably explain his insanity.

-Stephen lost his brother when he was a teenager. His brother was driving drunk.

-Joshua is shot in the back of the head by Quaid.

-Stephen is hit with an axe by Joshua. Quaid watches him bleed out after shooting Joshua.

-It's unknown whether Cheryl was ever released after being locked in the room with Stephen's corpse.

Quaid's fear was being killed by an axe murderer like his parents were. Stephen's fear was drink-driving as this was how his brother died. Cheryl's fear was meat. This is revealed after we find out that her father molested her as a child and worked in a meat-packing plant. Joshua's fear was going deaf again after he went deaf temporarily in a childhood accident. Abby's fear was being ridiculed because of her large, dark birthmark covering most of her body.

These fears all lead to a similar fate in their own deaths.
