Plot hole: When Freddy takes over Jesse's body at the party, there are several people watching through the patio doors when he confronts Lisa. None of these people ever make a sound, even when they see Lisa have a knife fight with a horribly disfigured man with long knives coming out of his fingers. The other party goers are completely oblivious to Freddy's presence until he comes jumping through the glass doors.
