Revealing mistake: Trish tells Tommy to go get a hammer and some nails. When Trish then shouts "Tommy, hurry" you can see the shelf to her right get bumped by somebody in the crew, who was obviously standing nearby. (01:13:50)

Revealing mistake: Just before Trish jumps out of the window, as Jason runs forward to get her, you can see that he has normal, human eyes, instead of his disfigured, strange eyes, seen at the end of the movie. (01:18:00)

Revealing mistake: When Trish has entered her house after escaping from Jason, she hears him behind her in the doorway, and swings at him with a machete, but hits the door frame. You can see there's a mark from a previous swing. (01:19:20)

Revealing mistake: Near the end when Jason throws the hammer at the girl, it sticks to the damaged part of the wall after it hits. But it's just against the wood with the flat top, there's nothing to hold the hammer there and it's only hit the wood on the other side of the wall. They probably used a magnet to attract and keep it there for safety reasons. (01:15:00)

Revealing mistake: Near the end when Trish is running from Jason, Jason crushes a lamp on the floor and for an instant it becomes pitch black. A moment later, the room is lit again by a sudden occurrence of "moonlight." (01:23:15)

Revealing mistake: When Trish and her mom are jogging, a bush in front of them moves before they run by it, caused by the cameraman brushing it as he walked backwards. (00:14:10)

Revealing mistake: When Jason rips Jimbo from the door, it shows a close up of his hand. Looks and tears like rubber. (01:17:15)

Revealing mistake: When Trish jumps out the window and falls to the ground you can see her using a body suit covering her from her hips and down her legs. (01:18:15)


Revealing mistake: When Trish jumps out through the window, rolls off the deck, and lands on the ground below, she obviously lands on a mat or some other protective device covered to look like mud. It jiggles like jelly in a perfect square when she lands on it. (01:18:15)

Revealing mistake: When Tina is thrown out the window you can see the roof of the car is partially damaged and very flexible when she hits it. (00:59:25)


Revealing mistake: After being hit with the machete, as Jason falls and lands on the ground (with the machete holding his skewered head in the air), it is painfully obvious from the skin texture and unnatural facial movements that his head is a replica prop. (01:25:00)

Jimmy: Ted. I think... I think when we get to town I should call Betty.
Ted: Jimbo, calling Betty is definitely a dead fuck thing to do. Look, first rule of love: never get rejected by the same girl twice. I mean, that's useless. If you want to make a fool out of yourself, always do it with someone new.
Jimmy: I don't know anyone new.
Ted: Well, sex is a great way to meet them.

Trivia: When Judie Aronson, who plays Samantha, was filming the scene in the raft where she gets killed, they were doing so many takes. She was wet and cold and wanted to warm up. The director refused until he got the shot he wanted which made Judie cry and freak out. Ted White, who played Jason, was so upset about this that he demanded they get her a blanket and let her get warmed up or he would walk off the set and not come back. Needless to say, Judie got warmed up very quickly.
