Continuity mistake: When Sam asks Sara to come into the water, Sara says no. Then Sam says "Then I'll go under water and stay there until you do", while placing her hands on the edge of the pier. When it cuts to a close-up of her she is resting her arms on the pier instead. (00:29:20)

Continuity mistake: This mistake is for the Deluxe Edition DVD only. In the previous film, Jason is defeated by an axe blow to the head, which pierces through the top of his hockey mask on the left side. In this subsequent sequel, the cut in his mask is still on the left side. However, for the menu of this DVD, the hockey mask is shown as the menu art with the same cut from the axe. However it's on the wrong side of the mask, being on the right side now.

Continuity mistake: When Trish and Tommy get to the house, it's pouring rain. When they get into the house, Trish's hair is completely dry and there's just a small wet spot on her blue shirt.


Revealing mistake: Trish jumps out the window and lands face up on the ground. You can plainly see it's Kimberly Beck's stunt double. She looks nothing like her. (01:21:35)
