Continuity mistake: When Jimbo gets his hand impaled on the counter with a corkscrew by Jason, the counter is clear, but a few scenes later as Jason leaves the kitchen, there's a pot holder laying on the counter. (00:58:25 - 01:01:20)

Revealing mistake: Trish tells Tommy to go get a hammer and some nails. When Trish then shouts "Tommy, hurry" you can see the shelf to her right get bumped by somebody in the crew, who was obviously standing nearby. (01:13:50)

Revealing mistake: Just before Trish jumps out of the window, as Jason runs forward to get her, you can see that he has normal, human eyes, instead of his disfigured, strange eyes, seen at the end of the movie. (01:18:00)

Revealing mistake: When Trish has entered her house after escaping from Jason, she hears him behind her in the doorway, and swings at him with a machete, but hits the door frame. You can see there's a mark from a previous swing. (01:19:20)

Plot hole: When Jason is going next door to chase after Trish, he pulls Jimbo's body down from the doorway and begins walking towards Trish's cabin. He is seen walking by himself. However in the next scene, he throws Rob's body through the window. There was no time for him to go back and get the body. (01:17:15)


Revealing mistake: Near the end when Jason throws the hammer at the girl, it sticks to the damaged part of the wall after it hits. But it's just against the wood with the flat top, there's nothing to hold the hammer there and it's only hit the wood on the other side of the wall. They probably used a magnet to attract and keep it there for safety reasons. (01:15:00)

Revealing mistake: Near the end when Trish is running from Jason, Jason crushes a lamp on the floor and for an instant it becomes pitch black. A moment later, the room is lit again by a sudden occurrence of "moonlight." (01:23:15)

Revealing mistake: When Trish and her mom are jogging, a bush in front of them moves before they run by it, caused by the cameraman brushing it as he walked backwards. (00:14:10)

Continuity mistake: In Part III, Jason's fingernails were neat and trimmed, but in Part IV (which occurs the very next day), they are long and black. (00:07:00)

Revealing mistake: When Jason rips Jimbo from the door, it shows a close up of his hand. Looks and tears like rubber. (01:17:15)

Visible crew/equipment: When Paul is stabbed by Jason's harpoon and lifted up in to the air, the wires attached to him are visible on either side. (00:45:40)


Continuity mistake: As Jason breaks into Tommy's room, a purple monster mask on Tommy's wall starts to spin, then stops a few shots later, then starts spinning again in the next shot. (01:16:00)

Continuity mistake: After electrocuting Jason with the TV, he falls backwards, and the door is left open. When Trish and Tommy walk over, the door is shut. (01:16:25)

Continuity mistake: Nurse Morgan's name tag is on the opposite side to the pocket with the pen in it, on her white nurse dress. Yet when Jason stabs Nurse Morgan, her name tag is right next to the pocket. (00:12:00)

Continuity mistake: When Jimmy and one of the twin girls go upstairs, Ted is left behind with the other twin. He tries to give her a charming look while both his arms arm down. When it cuts from behind him he is suddenly holding his left arm up. (00:43:45)


Factual error: When Tommy is playing Zaxxon on his computer, he is about to go into a barrier and die. Firstly the audio of the ship crashing happens before it hits, secondly, in the next shot the ship has reappeared. (00:14:30)

Jimmy: Ted. I think... I think when we get to town I should call Betty.
Ted: Jimbo, calling Betty is definitely a dead fuck thing to do. Look, first rule of love: never get rejected by the same girl twice. I mean, that's useless. If you want to make a fool out of yourself, always do it with someone new.
Jimmy: I don't know anyone new.
Ted: Well, sex is a great way to meet them.
