Friday the 13th Part VIII: Jason Takes Manhattan

New this month Continuity mistake: Jason's clothes change quite a bit from the previous film, in part 7 they were torn to shreds so much so you could see most of his rib cage and spine and he had tan work gloves on. Now the clothes are mostly in one piece and the gloves are black or dark blue.

This inconsistency is never explained or even acknowledged.

Trivia

Jensen Daggett was genuinely terrified when actor Kane Hodder pulled her towards him, through the porthole. This is because a huge shard of glass was right by her throat and Kane was unknowingly pulling her toward it. You can see the frightened look on her face.
