Freddy Vs. Jason

Plot hole: During the first fight scene between Freddy and Jason in the dream world, Jason tosses Freddy into some pipes which causes water to spray everywhere. When Jason is about to attack Freddy and stops to back away from the water, it is explained that Jason is "afraid" of the water. While logical on paper, this makes absolutely no sense with the rest of the Friday the 13th movies and an earlier scene in Freddy vs. Jason. Jason has on many occasions ventured freely into Crystal Lake to kill his victims in earlier movies, and in this movie he walks all the way to Elm Street in the pouring rain. Surely if he was afraid of water he'd not have completely submerged himself in a lake, and would have taken shelter under a tree until the rain storm passed.


Plot hole: There's no way Jason could decapitate Blake's father the way he did without also decapitating Blake, who was sitting next to him sleeping.


Plot hole: In the institute, Will's friend gets out of his room to get the guard's keys. He couldn't have gotten out of his room because there isn't a handle or door lock inside the room.


Plot hole: The sheriff orders a 24 hour roadblock on the town, yet the van has no trouble driving to Crystal Lake.


Plot hole: Linderman didn't know who Jason was after the rave massacre, calling him a "psycho in the hockey-mask", but later in the film when Stubb's is telling them (Will, Lori, linderman, Freeburg and Kia) about thinking Jason is a copycat, Linderman suddenly acts like he knows who they're dealing with when he didn't before. "I've seen what he can do, he's the real Jason."


Plot hole: Right before the second boy gets killed he wakes up after having a dream of Freddy and sees his dad sitting next to him. When the boy taps his dad lightly his head falls off and we then see Jason standing there. In order for this to have happened, Jason would have had to unbutton the dad's shirt, chop his head off, put it back in place, and rebutton his shirt without getting any blood anywhere on the body and without the dad putting up a fight. Also Jason waits until after the boy wakes up and sees his dad dead before killing him. Wouldn't Jason just kill him in his sleep like he does to the girl in the cornfield later on in the movie?

Visible crew/equipment: When Freddy is brought into the real world and is fighting Jason in the cabin, look carefully as Jason picks up Freddy and pushes him out the window, you can see a cable attached to Freddy's chest in a close up. (01:14:35)

Trivia: In Lori's dream, kids teasing a young Jason place a burlap sack on his head, similar to the burlap sack Jason wore in Friday the 13th Part 2. Jason started wearing the goalie mask in Friday the 13th part 3. (00:08:00)

Question: It shows in Jason's dream that he drowned as a kid, so how is it that he is now an adult? Also was he handicapped or just deformed?

Den Mitchell

Chosen answer: Jason survived due to his unique healing abilities, at the end of the original "Friday the 13th" he is shown coming out of the lake. He is deformed with some mental handicap.
