Trivia: The original script had many more scenes set in New York City. Jason would have attacked people in several iconic locations, including Madison Square Garden and the Empire State Building. But budget limitations meant the majority of scenes set in New York had to be cut out. Writer/Director Rob Heddon has lamented this fact and has said he agrees with fans being disappointed that so little of the film is set in New York.
Trivia: Despite the film's title, Jason is only in Manhattan for ten minutes.
