Factual error: In relation to the position of the sewage workers shadow, and the way Jason kills him, there is no way that the splatter of blood would have hit the wall the way it does. In addition the blood looks like paint. (01:27:20)

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.

Revealing mistake: When Rennie is pushed overboard the ship stays in the exact same place, as if it is docked. In reality the boat would have sailed on, leaving Rennie behind. (00:29:25)

Continuity mistake: When Rennie is being pushed overboard, notice the guys sitting in the background wearing a blue shirt. When it cuts from below the ship, as we see Rennie falling, the guy is gone.

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.
