Trivia: When Madeleine is in the morgue, we get a shot of a table and on that table is a jar with a brain and formaldehyde in it, and on the jar is a sign and the sign says "abnormal." This is a homage to the film "Young Frankenstein": Dr Frankenstein sent Igor to the morgue to get a specific brain, an intelligent man's brain, but Igor was startled and dropped the intelligent brain, so looked around for another one and he did: He found a brain with the label "abnormal" on it, and that is why the monster was so hard to teach and control.
