Friday the 13th Part VIII: Jason Takes Manhattan

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. (00:39:10)

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. (00:30:10)

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. (00:46:10)

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)

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. (00:39:10)

Revealing 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)

Revealing mistake: You can see a faint red line on the Captain's neck, before it is cut. (00:39:10)

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)

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.

Revealing mistake: When Tamara pushes Rennie overboard, the water is calm and there are no waves. (00:29:25)

Revealing mistake: As Jason brings his arm back to punch Julius, the back of his neck obviously buckles like a rubber mask. (01:09:40)

Revealing mistake: Obvious dummies are in the car's back seats just before it slams into the wall. (01:12:35)

Revealing mistake: When the deckhand falls to the floor, you can clearly see the square outline of the equipment holding the axe in his back. (00:57:20)

Revealing mistake: When Jason starts to strangle Eva in the disco room, a blue strobe light suddenly starts to flash. If you look behind Eva in one shot, you can see the actual strobe light come into the shot, obviously being held by a crewmember. (00:46:20)

Revealing mistake: When Rennie crashes the police car into the wall, the explosion clearly occurs before the car even comes into contact with the wall. (01:12:30)

Revealing mistake: Flammable liquid is clearly visible on Wayne's jeans, when he is thrown into the switchboard, and caught on fire. (00:49:30)

Revealing mistake: In the scene when the crazy guy is hit in the back with the axe, when he falls, the axe sways side to side a little bit, then stops a couple inches of center from before.

Revealing mistake: Flammable liquid is visible over the floor, in the shot of the flames in the engine room. (00:50:50)

Revealing mistake: When Tamara is thrown into the mirror, in the reflection you can tell that it is a stunt-woman. (00:36:50)

Revealing mistake: When Jason breaks his hand through the door it's really strange how his hand makes a perfect square on the broken door. Telling that the door was already broken and then repaired loosely for the stunt.
