Plot hole: When the cop shows Pam the newspaper clippings they include what look to be fresh photos of the real Jason from the events of Part IV, yet no photographer is ever seen taking pictures of Jason alive in the previous films and most likely wouldn't live long enough to publish the photo.

Continuity mistake: In the beginning, when the two shuttles have docked together, one of the NASA astronauts inserts some kind of key into the door and begins to turn it. When he does you hear a ratcheting sound, however, once the door begins to open and there's a shot from the inside of the uninhabited shuttle, the astronaut isn't holding any type of tool, and still the ratcheting sound can be heard as the door opens further.
Continuity mistake: Near the end when the vampires are trying to get into the crypt and Jim Carrey has locked them out, we see two vampires trying to enter the room through one door and others going around to get in through the other entrance. When they get in, the vampires have reversed which entrance they were trying to use - the ones who stayed at the first door enter through the second door and vice versa.
Revealing mistake: In the scene where Herbert and Dan re-animate the dead corpse, watch closely when Herbert rams the little buzz saw into the corpse's chest. At the bottom of the screen, you can see where the fake chest ends.
Other mistake: It is stated at the beginning of the film that the events that take place start in the spring of 1976, and span over the summer. The Climax, and final scene of the movie, take place on Halloween night. In the scene directly after Milt Sturmfuller was killed, the gas station attendant is seen reading about the slaying in the local newspaper. The date on the paper is Friday September 8, 1980.
Revealing mistake: On the ledge Robert Hayes is attached to the wall by a wire protruding from his shirt.
