Friday the 13th Part VIII: Jason Takes Manhattan

Continuity mistake: When we see Jason lying on the bottom of the lake, we also see some chains lying around. At first we see the upper chain lying out on the edge of a plank. But when Jason gets electricity through him we see the chain has moved in to the middle of the plank. (00:06:15)

Factual error: When Jason pushes Julius overboard, he would have drowned within minutes. No one can stay underwater that long without drowning.

Continuity mistake: In the film Sean and Rennie are on board the Lazarus. Sean puts both of his hands into his jacket pocket to get Rennie's gift. He never hands it to her, but In the next shot she has it in her hands. (00:16:55)

Revealing mistake: When Jason throws Wayne into the electrical switchboard, Wayne's jeans catches fire before he even hits the board. (00:49:30)

Rennie: There is a maniac trying to kill us.
Waitress: Welcome to New York.

Trivia: The shot of Jason "undrowning" - so to speak - at the end of the film, with water gushing from his mouth, was accomplished thanks to Kane Hodder's uncanny ability to vomit on cue. Prior to the shoot, Hodder downed a pitcher of water.
