Continuity mistake: Crystal Lake goes from a lake surrounded by land in previous installments to suddenly having the space for a small yacht and a channel that feeds right to the open ocean.

Continuity mistake: When Rennie and Sean are on the ladder in the sewer Rennie's position changes between shots. (01:29:50)

Continuity mistake: Rennie's visions of Jason as a boy change their appearance constantly throughout the film. At some points he is bald and deformed, much like how he was in the original film. At other times he appears as a normal, non-deformed boy with a full head of brown hair. At some moments he even appears as a mix of both (with a deformed face, but a full head of hair). This inconsistency is never explained or even acknowledged.
