So the change in ending to me indicates that Letts wants us to face Peel's choice, since we'll never know for sure if he "smears the blood." (I agree that, up until that moment, at least in this production, it seems that he must have returned to capitulate.)
Yes, the inspirations from other horror fictions are clear. But the work this most reminds me of is Wallace Shawn's monologue "The Fever," which wants us to see that our comfort and privilege are built on subjugation and blood.
