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. Writer and Director Adam Green grew up in Massachusetts, and would buy his horror movies and action figures from there. See more »
Shawn takes the group to the tour on a bus which leaves the French Quarter in daylight. Enough time passes that the sun goes down, signifying they've been driving a while. Shawn then directs their attention to a passing cemetery which he claims is Saint Louis Cemetery #1 and which he says houses the tomb of Marie Laveau - except that cemetery is back in the French Quarter, just a couple of blocks' walk away from where the tour bus departed.

Okay folks, I am your tour guide Shawn. Just sit back and get ready to enjoy some...
Ah, buddy, you don't need that thing. This is, like, the size of a Mini Cooper.

Much better than most, but...
The tag-line "Old School American Horror" is a little misleading. While it's true that "Hatchet" recalls the mad gore of the 1980s, the "horror" factor is actually absent. Watching the film feels more like viewing a condensed reel of slasher kills with a few drunk and fun-loving friends - certainly not a bad thing, but not exactly a horror movie either. That being said, it's obvious that the people involved in the production have a real love for the genre. Kane Hodder's monster antics are always a delight, and Adam Green will definitely be a name to watch in the future.
In summary, I'd certainly recommend the film for anyone who gets a kick out of the slasher craze of the 80s, but be sure you're in the mood for goofy fun and not an actual horror flick.
