Friday the 13th Part VI: Jason Lives

Revealing mistake: When the lightning strikes the metal pole in Jason's grave for the second time, a wire is visible attached to the tree where the electrical explosion appears. (00:06:00)

Mortug

Continuity mistake: During the scene where Jason kills the couple in the volkswagen and again during the police chase it goes from night to day to night again. (00:13:00)

Continuity mistake: In Part V the mayor says Jason was cremated, which would mean there would be no body to "bring back" for this film.

Continuity mistake: Jason's machete disappears from his hand as he walks after Steven through the woods.

Continuity mistake: The sheriff shoots Jason in the head with his revolver and makes a hole by Jason's right eye. Jason pulls Tommy underwater and begins to choke him and Tommy passes out. There is a close up of Jason's face and the bullet hole is now gone. When Megan tries to save Tommy she cuts Jason's throat with the boat propeller and the bullet hole is visible again on Jason's mask. (01:07:25 - 01:18:00)

Continuity mistake: When Tommy is in the boat at the end, he pours gasoline on each side of the boat. He lights one side and both sides ignite, but how could this be if he didn't pour it all around the boat. Also, when he is fighting with Jason the ring of fire moves away from the boat. (01:14:05)

Revealing mistake: When the main girl finds the decapitated head in the car towards the end, you can see that it's just a doll. (01:09:55)

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)

FreDroDaGod

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)

FreDroDaGod

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

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

Allen Hawes: You just have to see that Jason's dead, right? Seeing his corpse ain't gonna stop your hallucinations.
Tommy: Seeing it won't, but destroying it will. Jason belongs in Hell - and I'm gonna see to it that he gets there.

More quotes from Friday the 13th Part VI: Jason Lives

Trivia: Director Tom McLoughlin revealed in a 2017 interview that he was approached at one point to write and direct the seventh installment of the series after "Jason Lives" proved popular. Knowing the studio wanted to make "Freddy VS Jason" at that point but couldn't due to legal rights, McLoughlin pitched another crossover idea - "Cheech and Chong Meet Jason", a farcical comedy starring the stoner comedy-duo in the vein of the old Universal "Abbot and Costello Meet..." films. The producer thought the film would do well with comedy audiences and was entertained by the idea, but ultimately decided it would alienate horror fans too much and it never moved forward.
