Friday the 13th Part VIII: Jason Takes Manhattan

New this month 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.

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.

Hamster

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.

xx:xx:xx

Hamster

Continuity mistake: By the radio on Jim's boat is a bottle with a boat in it and the cork in the bottle is pointing to the left side. When Suzi gets up to check on the noise, the bottle is visible and the cork is now pointing to the right side.

Continuity mistake: After Tamara comes out of the the shower she is completely dry.

xx:xx:xx

Revealing mistake: In the scene in which Jason kills the captain of the boat, it is quite obvious that Jason uses the blunt side of the machete to slit the captain's throat.

xx:xx:xx

Revealing mistake: As Sean dives into the water to save Rennie, in all the overhead shots Rennie has dry, curly hair, but in closeups her hair is soaked down straight. In the overhead shots it's obviously a stunt double.

Hamster

Visible crew/equipment: As Jason is walking down some steps, a little after he kills J.J., you can see the shadow of a crewmember pushing equipment, cast on the wall.

Continuity mistake: When Jason grabs the man in the diner he is several paces to the right of the mirror, but when he throws the man into the mirror Jason can clearly be seen in the reflection standing right across from it.

Hamster

Revealing mistake: When Jason strangles Eva, you can see where the rotten flesh makeup ends on his arm, and that the rest is just a fabric sleeve.

xx:xx:xx

Hamster

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.

xx:xx:xx

Hamster

Revealing mistake: When Jason kills the boat captain he comes up way short of making contact with the captain's throat. He's probably a good 2 inches away from it. It definitely doesn't help that this scene is in slow motion either.

xx:xx:xx

Visible crew/equipment: When the boxing scene starts, as the camera pans past the punchbag, the shadow of the camera is clearly cast on it. Then as the camera continues to pan past the punchbag, you can see the sides of two crewmembers come into view (who are following the path of the camera.) They are both wearing a jumper and jeans.

xx:xx:xx

Hamster

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Tamara gets out of the shower, her silk gown which hangs on the handrail changes position between shots.

xx:xx:xx

Hamster

Plot hole: How would Jim have been able to get that hockey mask? it even has the replica axe mark from where Jason was hacked in Part III by Chris.

xx:xx:xx

Hamster

Plot hole: Where exactly did all the other people go on the ship? In the beginning of the movie there were people everywhere then all of a sudden it's down to the main characters.

Continuity mistake: When the blonde girl gets out of the shower right before Jason stabs her with the mirror blade, she exits the shower dry as a bone. She should of been glistening or have water dripping off of her.

Hamster

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.

Continuity mistake: The shards of glass around the porthole change between shots, as Jason attacks Rennie.

xx:xx:xx

Hamster

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.

xx:xx:xx

Hamster

Factual error: When the captain gets his throat slashed, hardly any blood comes out. When a persons throat is cut, blood will pour out in large volumes as there is a major artery in the neck.

amycamille1975

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.

Visible crew/equipment: When everyone is getting off the ship and into the small boat, it's raining. Jason is looking down at them - right when he is looking down you can see above him the sprinkler making the rain.

xx:xx:xx

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.

Hamster

Visible crew/equipment: When Julius' head falls into the dumpster, a black cord can be seen pulling the lid down.

xx:xx:xx

Hamster

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.

xx:xx:xx

Hamster

Revealing mistake: When Jason breaks through the glass trying to get to Rennie it is obvious that the glass is just plastic. It is most noticeable when Jason is moving his head, the glass bends.

Suggested correction: The glass is real, the actress has even stated that it almost punctured her eye.

Continuity mistake: When Toby turns up at the end, in the street, in the first shot of him his shadow is short. In the next shot it's very long.

Continuity mistake: When Jason is walking down the stairs toward J.J. his left foot comes off the last step but in the next shot it's his right.

xx:xx:xx

Continuity mistake: The black sludge on the girl's white pants when she's in the sewer at the end is constantly changing. It sometimes changes position or isn't there at all in later shots. The best example is when she lures Jason away from the guy that just got knocked out and runs into the dead end. She slides down the wall next to the toxic chemical container and the back and sides of her pants are completely covered in the black sludge, when she runs away, her pants are totally clean.

xx:xx:xx

Factual error: Jason stabs the druggie with the needle and it comes out the front, but his hand is only on his back and the needle isn't long enough to go through to the other side.

Revealing mistake: As Jason brings his arm back to punch Julius, the back of his neck obviously buckles like a rubber mask.

Hamster

Continuity mistake: When the two girls are sniffing cocaine their hair changes positions.

Revealing mistake: Obvious dummies are in the car's back seats just before it slams into the wall.

xx:xx:xx

Plot hole: Jason all of a sudden can drive a boat and out of nowhere, seems to know about a cruise ship filled with teenagers ready for him to kill. Yeah, makes sense to me. Especially since there is land with buildings right where Jim and Suzie drop anchor on their boat. Jason gives up killing people in those buildings to drive to a cruise ship that he cannot possibly know about? Also the fact that the survivors get to New York and minutes later Jason just happens to pop out of the water? Are we led to believe that he not only learned how to swim to New York but he managed to not kill everyone while they were in the life raft?

SAZOO1975

Factual error: The amount of people on the ship is very unrealistic. Although the low number of people is to benefit the plot, there should have been cooks, waiters, deckhands, boiler room engineers, cleaners etc.

Factual error: When J.J. sees Jason she drops her guitar running away. The guitar then feedbacks. But when J.J. confronts Jason again he has the guitar with him, unplugged, but still we hear the sound of feedback.

Hamster

Continuity mistake: In the streets, Rennie and Sean run past a group of teens, and behind them, look at the "Howard Johnson" sign. It is dark and unlit. But when Jason passes them, it is lit up. When Jason then turns and shows the teenagers his face, the sign is once again unlit.

Continuity mistake: In the film Jason kills the guy in the sauna with a hot coal into his stomach, and there's no blood. When Jason leaves you can see the guys chest and now it's covered with blood.

xx:xx:xx

Revealing mistake: When we see a wide shot of the ship in the storm we can see the ship slide through the waves untouched by them. It's obvious the scene is fake.

xx:xx:xx

Mortug

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.

xx:xx:xx

Hamster

Factual error: When Rennie and Sean are on the ladder and the toxic waste is flooding through "destroying" Jason, they are completely unscathed. There is no way there would be no splash back burning them, plus the fumes from the toxic waste which they are subjected to would have done them serious bodily harm.

Add time

Continuity mistake: Rennie's visions of Jason as a boy change their appearance constantly throughout the film. At some points he is bald and deformed, much like how he was in the original film. At other times he appears as a normal, non-deformed boy with a full head of brown hair. At some moments he even appears as a mix of both (with a deformed face, but a full head of hair). This inconsistency is never explained or even acknowledged.
