This film reinforced the NRM/cult scare that appears in the 1950’s and continues through today. As Neal stated, “in the 1970’s, with the rise of cult scare and intense media scrutiny of NRM’s, nineteen fictional television shows employed elements of the cult stereotype” and “Ticket to Heaven” follows just that, NRM should be something to be afraid of because they brainwash their members and make them into people they are not.

Rauschenberg and Johns had already abandoned individual, titled paintings in favor of large series of works, all depicting the same objects. In the early 1960s the American Andy Warhol carried the idea a step further by adopting the mass-production technique of silk-screening, turning out hundreds of identical prints of Coca-Cola bottles, Campbell’s soup cans, and other familiar subjects. One of the most important artistic movements of the 20th century, pop art not only influenced the work of subsequent artists but also had an impact on the 'real world ' like commercial, graphic, and fashion design.
