Friday the 13th Part VIII: Jason Takes Manhattan

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)

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)

Revealing mistake: Throughout the movie, the black cloth covering Jason's eyes under the hockey mask is really noticeable, especially when he grabs onto the rope to climb aboard the Lazarus. (00:15:25)

Continuity mistake: When Sean is given the present by his father, there is a polystyrene pad next to the computer navigator, which is sticking out. In the next shot it's pushed in neatly. (00:14:25)

Continuity mistake: After Wayne shoots his friend, he looks through his camera. The timer on the camera reads "20:19." It cuts to another angle of Wayne, then back. The camera still reads "20:19" even though a few seconds passed in the other shot. (00:48:30)

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 gets up and walks over to the closet, you can see some items on the side, such as a decorated silk cloth, a bag etc. When Jason then looks through the porthole into Rennie's room, the position of all the items are different. (00:21:35)

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. Also when Miss Van Deusen goes for the life ring, we see from below the ship that the guy is gone. But when it cuts he is there again. (00:29:20)

Mortug

Visible crew/equipment: When Sean finds Rennie in the alley recliner and kneels down to comfort her, there is a clear shadow of equipment on his jacket sleeve. (01:18:15)

Waitress: Welcome to New York.

More trivia for Friday the 13th Part VIII: Jason Takes Manhattan

Question: After Jason kills Jim and Suzi on Crystal Lake, how does Jim's boat end up being at the harbor next morning? Crystal Lake is not connected to the sea. It's just surrounded by land, right?

Bunch Son

Chosen answer: To the best of my knowledge, this is just a bit of a continuity mistake. While previous films have not indicated Crystal Lake is connected to the ocean, this film portrays it as being connected. You just kinda gotta go with it for the movie to work.
