Friday the 13th Part VI: Jason Lives

Continuity mistake: When Jason looks at the camp and you can see the Camp Forest Green sign there is smoke coming out of the chimney of the cabin with the welcome sign. In the next shot where Jason walks into the camp there is no smoke coming from the chimney. Also, there is a change in the lighting visible by looking at the shadows created by the bushes on the left. (00:44:58)

FreDroDaGod

Continuity mistake: The position of the blinds behind Cort changes. It's all the way down at first but the next shot the blinds are rolled halfway up. (00:40:27)

FreDroDaGod

Continuity mistake: In the RV bathroom the curtain rod they knock down in the struggle could not have possibly been there when Jason dragged her into the bathroom. The rod is lower than the top of the door and would have been knocked down. It's obviously not there when Jason jumps out. (00:39:50)

FreDroDaGod

Continuity mistake: Jason's suit is a little dirty but not damaged at all. This is a result of this scene being added months after filming had wrapped. (00:31:16)

FreDroDaGod

Continuity mistake: Jason has been shown to be right-handed but in this scene he has the machete in his left hand. The dart pouch is barely visible and the machete holster is not. In the shot of his head the axe wound is missing. This is all because the film has been flipped - it's a mirror image of a previous shot of Jason walking. (00:28:43)

FreDroDaGod

Continuity mistake: In the second row the second girl from the right has a pink bag and doll in her lap. The next shot both are gone. (00:27:25)

FreDroDaGod

Continuity mistake: The liquor bottle has a red and gold label. Later the liquor bottle label is white with gold trim. The change occurred because the caretaker's death was filmed months after the shooting had wrapped. (00:27:14 - 00:30:29)

FreDroDaGod

Continuity mistake: When Tommy is handcuffed and stood up he has leaves and debris stuck to his shirt but in the next shot of him standing up it's all gone. (00:26:33)

FreDroDaGod

Continuity mistake: This is not the same cemetery as the one in the opening scene, this is a real cemetery. The layout is different. There are no hills or staircases. It has different monuments and tombstones which actually have names on them. The quick shot of Jason's grave is just an insert. All the actors also avoid walking over any graves, and they do not take the same care in the opening scene. (00:25:39)

FreDroDaGod

Continuity mistake: As Jason pulls out the machete for the triple decapitation you can see his sleeve pulled up slightly revealing the Dan Bradley's wrist. It's not Jason's rotted skin seen in the opening. (00:24:18)

FreDroDaGod

Continuity mistake: Roy has somehow circled back and is standing beside the same tree he was kneeling beside earlier when he broke the branch. The vines on the front of the tree were removed and the branch he broke is just below the camera but the tree itself and the trees in the background are identical. (00:22:58 - 00:24:04)

FreDroDaGod

Continuity mistake: When Jason holds up the severed arm and machete there is a small gap in the sleeve where you can see CJ Graham's skin and not Jason's rotted skin seen earlier. (00:22:29)

FreDroDaGod

Continuity mistake: The paint ballers are wearing safety googles which have two indirect vents on the top. These removable vents disappear one by one over the next few minutes. Larry is missing the vent over his right eye, then both vents. Then Katie is missing the vent over her left eye, then Stan is now missing the vent over his left eye and Katie is now missing both vents. (00:20:37)

FreDroDaGod

Continuity mistake: The "spearhead" of the pole Jason is holding is in his right hand pointed into the sky. In the next shot where he goes to stab the tire the spearhead is in his left hand pointed down to ground. (00:13:30)

FreDroDaGod

Continuity mistake: When Lizbeth puts the car in reverse and backs up the shot from the exterior shows the car backing up but the next shot from the interior you can see out the window that the car is not moving. The following shot of the exterior you see the car come to a stop just before the edge. (00:12:58)

FreDroDaGod

Continuity mistake: When Hawes runs away he can be seen in the background tripping and falling over. He is getting back up and racing away to the left toward the truck. The fall may not be a mistake but at no point is he shown coming back. A few shots later Hawes appears out of nowhere behind Jason to the right and attacks with the shovel. (00:07:25)

FreDroDaGod

Continuity mistake: When Tommy holds the mask in both hands before he throws it in the coffin, the strap on the right side of the mask is not connected to the other two straps. They are connected minutes later when Jason puts on the mask. (00:05:59)

FreDroDaGod

Other mistake: In the final scene of the movie, Megan starts a boat motor and uses the propeller to hit Jason in the face, who has been chained down underwater. But if Jason can only barely reach her foot from underwater, there's no way the boat propeller is underwater far enough to reach his face. (01:17:50)

Question: Why did Jason go into the children's cabin the first and second times? And why did he just draw close to Nancy when she saw him?

JohnShel91

Chosen answer: The first and second visits are unexplained. However he drew close to Nancy to install fear in her.

Answer: Yes, I don't believe he was trying to scare her; I think he was just looking at her out of genuine curiosity.

Answer: In all his attacks he's never killed children, it's like he's never seen them before. Plus, it's almost he trying to recall memories of what he's looking at. "Where have I seen these little people before."

The children might possibly remind Jason of his own days at the camp when he was a child, before he drowned.
