Both Jared Padalecki and Jensen Ackles cite this episode as one of their favorites in the first issue of the Official Supernatural Magazine:
:'''Jensen Ackles:''' "...the guys on The Benders - the whole family - were also great..."
:'''Jared Padalecki:''' "I realize that wasn't supernatural at all, but it was a fun show to
films and a fun one to watch."}}
This episode has similar themes to the ''The X-Files'' episode "[http://www.tv.com/the-x-files/home/episode/565/summary.html Home]," which features a secluded family that has a long tradition of inbreeding and violence toward anyone who comes close to its members. Both episodes play on the same themes: a strong (and perverted) sense of family and a vision of horror that isn't brought by demons or creatures, but humans. It is often said to be the scariest and most disturbing ''X-Files'' episode. }}
