Continuity mistake: When Jason swings the girl in sleeping bag against the tree, he grabs the head end, yet the head end is the one that hits the tree. [This is fixed and not a mistake in the uncut editions (theatrical and new release dvd) because the uncut scene has Jason taking six swings with the sleeping bag against the tree, including the head end.] (00:26:50)

Continuity mistake: When Jason shoves his fist through Dan in the woods his fist is bloody, but when he kills Dan's girlfriend, the blood is gone. (00:27:00)

Hamster Premium member

Continuity mistake: In the shot where Sandra notices Russell's dead body lying on the shore, Sandra's trainers are lying right next to her shirt and shorts. In every other shot her trainers are nowhere to be seen on the shore. (00:35:50)

More quotes from Friday the 13th Part VII: The New Blood

Trivia: During his four-movie tenure portraying Jason, Kane Hodder actually put a lot of thought into the character, and developed what he thought Jason's personality would be in order to give himself motivation for the role. Hodder also created a strict set of rules that he would follow while playing Jason. For example, Hodder felt Jason would never hurt animals, since he had a childlike mind and wouldn't want to harm a creature he saw as inherently innocent. And more importantly, Hodder insisted that while he played the character, Jason would not harm or go after children, since he "drowned" as a child and recognizes them as being innocent like he was. While the rules do somewhat contradict earlier films, Hodder stuck by his guns.

Question: How can Jason go into the lake in Parts 6 and 7 if he's afraid of water due to drowning? He'd freeze up from the sight right?

Rob245

Answer: Jason being afraid of water is not portrayed consistently throughout the series. Continuity between sequels was not a major concern when making this series.

BaconIsMyBFF

Answer: I think that Jason is actually afraid of unpredictable situations with water. He is familiar with Crystal Lake after living in the forest for so long. He might be less hesitant to enter this lake sometimes.
