Audio problem: In the beginning, Claudette and the other counsellors are all singing. When they get closer you can see that Claudette is playing the guitar, then she stops, but the guitar playing and singing still continues.
Continuity mistake: When Alice opens the pantry door to find Crazy Ralph in there, you can see Ned and Marcy running to the kitchen. It cuts to Ralph, then back again and the other two run into the kitchen again.
Continuity mistake: After Brenda is thrown through the window, she is facing to her right. Later when Alice goes back to the kitchen, she is facing to her left. The glass and wood around her changes too.
Continuity mistake: When the two teenagers find the axe in the bed, the axe is perfectly clean despite the fact it had been shoved through a girl's head. Furthermore, it also looks brand new with a fresh coat of polish on it as well.
Factual error: At the climax of the movie, Alice swings the machete at Mrs. Voorhees and decapitates her. When the blade makes contact with Mrs. Voorhees' neck, her head flies off at an incorrect angle, as though the cut began on the opposite side.
Plot hole: When Brenda is thrown out the window, Alice immediately runs outside to see Mrs. Vorhees pull up in the jeep. How can this be if she just threw Brenda in the cabin?
Revealing mistake: When Steve Christy is leaving the diner, it shows the outside of the diner, where it is raining. It's very obvious that the "rain" is just a sprinkler.
Deliberate mistake: When they are playing strip monopoly, Alice purchases Baltic Avenue and then Bill rolls the dice and Alice exclaims that he's rolled an "8" - putting him on Baltic Avenue. However if you look carefully at the dice (before Brenda quickly scoops them up) you can see they show two 5's.
