Friday the 13th Part VI: Jason Lives

Revealing mistake: The muddy water is heated. You can see steam rising off water when Lizbeth is in it. The amount of steam changes as the water cools. Lizbeth is played by the director's then-wife, and they weren't going to let her sit in freezing water. (00:14:53)


Revealing mistake: The shovel that Hawes uses to hit Jason is a fake breakaway shovel. It doesn't just break the wooden handle the metal part of the shovel itself breaks into pieces. Regardless of how hard Jason's head is Hawes could not swing that hard. (00:08:08)


Revealing mistake: This is not a real cemetery - all the tombstones and monuments are fake. There are no names or inscriptions at all. Tommy is running around shining his light and pretending to read blank tombstones. The only real tombstone with a name is Jason's. (00:02:05)


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)

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.
