Continuity mistake: At the start in the van, the girl you see smoking dope hands over her cigarette to the other kid. She uses her index finger and her thumb with the cigarette facing downwards, but in the next shot she has got it between her index finger and middle finger and it is facing upwards. (00:18:35)

Continuity mistake: The last thing Andy sees is he walks down the hall on his hands is Jason slicing straight downwards at him with his machete. But this would have bisected him lengthwise, not at the waist. When we see his body up in the rafters, he's been sliced into a top half and a bottom half.

Continuity mistake: When Loco goes to the barn, he has a cigarette in his mouth. When he goes into the barn, it has gotten shorter although it's not lit.

Continuity mistake: Chris puts her lantern down on a table in the sitting room, before going upstairs and finding the flooded bathroom. Later when Rick's body is thrown through the window, the lantern has vanished. (01:08:30 - 01:12:25)

Continuity mistake: When Fox looks up the ladder, we see the edges around the ladder hole, and the floor is covered in hay. Moments later, when Loco looks for her, he climbs up the ladder, and there's no hay around the hole. (00:38:05)

Continuity mistake: When Shelly and Vera are walking out of the store, Vera stuffs Shelly's wallet into her beige pants. Later, while sitting on the dock, she pulls it out of her pink pants. She doesn't have a change of clothes with her. (00:31:05 - 00:56:40)

Continuity mistake: Jason has dark Khakis throughout the film, until the very end. When the cops are at the house, his body is in the barn wearing blue jeans. In part 4 he is still in blue jeans, but then changes into dark Khakis after leaving the hospital.

Continuity mistake: When Chris is in the sitting room, Rick's body is thrown through the window. When Rick lands on the floor a shard of glass slides down and lies on his cheek. In the next shot it's gone. (01:12:10)

Continuity mistake: When Vera says "I never said you were a nothing." to Shelley you can see Shelley holding the harpoon pointing up. When it cuts he has it lowered out of sight. (00:54:30)


Continuity mistake: When Fox closes the door at the barn we can see she is closing the right door. When it cuts from the inside we can see her closing the left door. (00:36:25)

More trivia for Friday the 13th Part 3: 3D

Question: Where is it ever stated that the shots of unmasked Jason in part 2 are hallucinations of Ginny's, and that is the reason for the difference in Jason's appearance between part 2 & 3?

Answer: The very ending of part 2 proves this, as Ginny appears again found by the police and ambulances. 1) if Jason really got her she would be dead, not alive, he wrapped around her. 2) Paul was dead, not alive and 3) as far as Jason's appearance she would not be able to stand it at first glance, so in her head she would put more human features on his face to be able to deal with it.

Answer: It is never stated anywhere that she's hallucinating, some say that Ginny surviving is proof but Jason was badly injured, she could have gotten away, this is before Jason became supernatural. The changes in Jason's appearance is simply a continuity error.
