Other mistake: During the credits, in the shot of the diner, the asian man sitting to the right glances right at the camera. (00:02:00)

Other mistake: Jason seems to be able to teleport in this film. Most notably towards the end when Mr. McCulloch is running from him down an ally, Jason is behind him, then in a matter of seconds he's on the top floor of a building, without ever entering it, in time to throw McCulloch out the window.

Other mistake: When Jason is resurrected in the lake, the water is quite well lit, even though it's night and there aren't any real light sources to light the lake up. (00:06:00)

Other mistake: Rennie shouldn't have been able to get on the boat at all. Being high school students, they would need a permission slip signed by their legal guardian to board the ship, just like any field trip. And, it's obvious that Charles would not sign one allowing Rennie to board. He definitely voiced his objections to the female teacher. Rennie can't make that decision on her own as she did.

Suggested correction: It was a graduation field trip. They were no longer students. Therefore she didn't need permission.

Continuity mistake: There is a large blue cooler by the stairs in the boat, under two postcards. But in the shot where Jason clips the harpoon, before shooting it, we can see the cooler has vanished. (00:07:40 - 00:09:00)

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. (00:53:25)

Question: What was with the ending? He melts down to a regular looking boy when in the original he was shown as deformed. I hate this ending, consider it the weakest and worst of the franchise.
