Continuity mistake: There is shot of the car turning hard to the right that doesn't belong here. It's part the upcoming shot when Megan hooks the wheel and skids to a stop in front of her father. You can see the red light from her fathers police car on the front end and side as it turns. She is not on Cunningham road yet. Also, the driver of the car appears to be a man with a moustache wearing a blonde wig. (00:51:25)

Audio problem: When the deputy is showing Sheriff Garris the remains of Roy, Sheriff Garris says "Our boy sure wants us to believe his story" The shot holds on the two of them for a second too long and the Sheriff is nodding his head and not speaking when the audio starts "Our boy..." The sheriffs mouth is closed when he says "Our boy..." before the shot cuts to the severed leg. (00:46:08)

Visible crew/equipment: When Megan is balancing in the chair there is a line attached to the bottom left side of the window blinds and it's being pulled by someone off camera. It's briefly visible by her right wrist while balancing and becomes visible when she falls backwards hitting the line causing the blinds to move even more. This is a little misdirection to draw attention to the window and to make you think Jason is gonna come through behind her. (00:43:45)

FreDroDaGod

Continuity mistake: After Tommy begins reading the book the next shot of Jason walking doesn't belong there. It is part of shot from later in the movie after Sheriff Garris shoots Jason in the head. The bullet wound and the blood from the head crush kill are visible on the mask. (00:43:13)

FreDroDaGod

Revealing mistake: The windshield wipers on the RV have disappeared along with the blinds and curtains. Also the driver appears to be wearing a helmet. (00:39:26)

FreDroDaGod

Continuity mistake: When the caretaker takes a drink there is still liquor in the bottle when pulls it away from his lips. You can hear it slosh around In the bottle. The next closeup shot shows the bottle is empty before he puts it in his mouth and then pretends to swallow. (00:30:37)

FreDroDaGod

Continuity mistake: When Megan talks to the girls there are multiple girls in this scene who are never seen again in the movie. There are 2 black girls and at least 3 white girls who are never seen again. Also, the main little girl from the later parts of the movie is nowhere to be seen in this shot. (00:27:26)

FreDroDaGod

Revealing mistake: During the chase scene when Tommy makes the turn towards the cemetery and the police car follows, you can see Colone is not in the passenger seat. The passenger is wearing glasses and has a seatbelt on and Colone has neither. (00:25:12)

FreDroDaGod

Continuity mistake: Colone has a blue pen in his left shirt pocket. The pen is there during the car ride and throughout the chase scene but disappears when he draws his gun. Later on the blue pen is back in his pocket when Colone says "Happy Friday the 13th". (00:22:35 - 00:45:48)

FreDroDaGod

Plot hole: Katie calls out that the game is over and Stan and Larry protest because no-one has seen Roy. Roy is not on their team so Roy's status doesn't matter to them. He is on the yellow team with Katie, and they are the only ones left so the game is over. Katie's response doesn't make much sense either. It doesn't matter if Roy is still out there or if he shot himself or got lost. Roy is on her team so the game is over. (00:23:50)

FreDroDaGod

Continuity mistake: Sissy put 2 ketchup bottles and 1 mustard on the counter top. When she turns to listen to Megan she bumps one bottle knocking over both ketchup bottles. As Megan finishes her story she points to the arriving bus full of kids you can see both bottles are back upright and the second ketchup bottle has moved behind the mustard. (00:19:10 - 00:19:45)

FreDroDaGod

Continuity mistake: Hawes' heart is missing from where it should be beside the grave. When Jason heart punched Hawes he dropped the heart as Hawes fell back into the grave. As Jason turns he can be heard stomping on the heart. The heart may be squashed but it should be there and the caretaker should have spotted it. The broken shovel and gas can are also nowhere to be seen. (00:17:58)

FreDroDaGod

Other mistake: Lizbeth doesn't push the clutch when slams the breaks so the car should have stalled out. You don't see or hear the car stall, and she does not have to restart the car. (00:13:32)

FreDroDaGod

Other mistake: Lizbeth shifts gears and never touches the clutch. While not impossible she would have to rev the engine just right to get it in gear which she does not appear to do. (00:13:25)

FreDroDaGod

Continuity mistake: The tire tracks in the mud left by the VW go past where Jason is standing in the middle of the road even though Jason hasn't moved. The shots looking at the car from behind Jason show no tracks in the mud at all. (00:13:08)

FreDroDaGod

Revealing mistake: To the right of Lizbeth out the window you can see a U shape metal object that is not there in the next shot when she begins to back up. (00:12:40)

FreDroDaGod

Revealing mistake: When Jason turns to heart punch Hawes his hand is already bloody before he punches. The blood flies off his hand when he pulls his arm back. A piece of bloody meat can be seen on top of his hand when his arm comes forward. (00:08:12)

FreDroDaGod

Revealing mistake: You can see the light used to simulate lightning turn on and off in the reflection of the eye. The light is circular and right beside another stage light. Real lightning would have outshined the other light and the entire pupil would have flashed white. You can also see it again in the next closeup of the eye. (00:07:00)

FreDroDaGod

Continuity mistake: The headlights from the cop cars that were right on her tail are now gone and the road behind the car is dark when she hooks the right on Cunningham Rd. In one second the cops have fallen so far back it takes them more than ten seconds before they pull into frame. (00:51:52)
