Shapiro: Have you ever heard of Bayou Beavers?
Shawn: But you only shot him once, right? Maybe you gotta shoot him more times. Like four- or six- maybe you gotta shoot him six times?
Jenna: By the way? Your "woo" is so not in the moment. Misty: Yeah? Well, your nipples are dumb.

- To keep the set hidden, the movie was called "Love Rodeo" during production.
When actor Joel Moore vomits on screen, it is real. Director Adam Green did not want the actors spitting out fake vomit like most films do. Though Joel managed to throw-up on his own for the first take, he was supplied with a mixture of cold clam chowder and orange juice for the second take.
Director Cameo: [Adam Green] One of the people in the group of friends at the start of the film.
"Hatchet" was the last production to shoot in Lousiana before Hurricane Katrina hit. Parry Shen ('Shawn'), took part in the last and first productions shot in Louisiana. ("Thief").
The T-shirt with the odd-looking smiley face on it is the logo for Newbury Comics, a New England chain that sells CDs, DVDs and comic books. Director Adam Green grew up in Massachusetts and would buy his horror movies and action figures from there.
