Trivia: Hatchet
  • Acting for Two: Kane Hodder plays both Victor's father and Victor himself.
    • Same with Pauly Shen, who's played three different characters throughout the series, playing Shawn in I, Shawn's twin brother in II and Andrew the Medic And the only survivor in III
  • Bad Export for You: The Canadian government barred the unrated version of Hatchet II from being shown in any Canadian theaters, since every film shown in Canadian theaters has to have a rating. Those behind the film didn't submit it for approval. What's more, no harm could have come from rating it as there's really no Canadian equivalent to America's stigma with the NC-17 rating.
  • The Cameo: Tony Todd, at least for the first film. He has a much bigger part in II. Then there's also Sid Haig in III as the last known living relative to Victor Crowley, who also has the ashes of Thomas Crowley.
    • Creator Cameo: Film's director Adam Green appears briefly in the Mardi Gras montage in the first film, and appears yet again, suffering from a hangover in II, then appears one last time in III getting brought into jail.
    • Death by Cameo: Englund's character in the first film along with Shawn Ashmore in the second film and Ben in the third film.
  • Hey, It's That Guy!: A treasure trove for horror fans. Kane Hodder is Victor, Robert Englund appears in the beginning as a redneck Red Shirt, and Tony Todd has a cameo early on as Reverend Zombie (and plays a larger role in the sequel). Mercedes McNab also plays Misty.
  • The Other Darrin: In the sequel, Danielle Harris replaces Tamara Feldman as Marybeth.
  • Shout-Out: "Does anyone wanna explain why Jamie's got a gun?"
    • There's also lots of references to the Friday the 13th films.
    • One guys says that where he comes from the local boogeyman is named Leslie Vernon.
  • Throw It In: Parry Shen came up with the magic trick in Shawn's introduction scene on the spot.
    • The psychotic laughter Marybeth indulges in when she pulverizes Victor's face with his hatchet at the end of II was not scripted, but it was left in anyway.
