* ActingForTwo: Creator/KaneHodder 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 [[spoiler: And the only survivor]] in ''III''
* BadExportForYou: 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.
* HeyItsThatGuy: A treasure trove for horror fans. Creator/KaneHodder is Victor (and his father), Creator/RobertEnglund appears in the beginning as a redneck RedShirt, and Creator/TonyTodd has a cameo early on as Reverend Zombie (and plays a larger role in the sequel). [[Series/TheAddamsFamily Mercedes]] [[Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer McNab]] also plays Misty.
** And in the sequel, Creator/DanielleHarris [[TheOtherDarrin steps in]] to play Marybeth.
** And for ''Series/{{Bones}}'' viewers, Ben is depressed lab intern Colin Fisher.
** [[Film/{{Gremlins}} Billy Peltzer]] is Sheriff Fowler in ''Hatchet III''.
* TheOtherDarrin: In the sequel, Creator/DanielleHarris replaces Tamara Feldman as Marybeth.
* ThrowItIn: Parry Shen came up with the magic trick in Shawn's introduction scene on the spot.
** The psychotic laughter Marybeth indulges in when she [[spoiler:pulverizes Victor's face with his hatchet at the end of ''II'']] was ''not'' scripted, but it was left in anyway.
