Revealing mistake: Near the end of the movie, as they are about to walk out of the barn thinking everything is over and Jason has been hung on the hook from the loft, if you look between the cracks of the barn door, you can see Jason being lowered right before the doors open.

Revealing mistake: After Loco has been killed, it cuts to a shot of Fox, who is pinned up on the rafters with a pitchfork. She is clearly moving, however, despite trying hard to stay still. (00:40:40)

Revealing mistake: Toward the end of the movie, Chris runs outside to find Rick after she finds a bloody dressing gown in the tub. When she goes by the tree, Loco falls down from the branches. When he falls you can see his closed mouth open a bit as if he was smiling, even though he is dead.

Revealing mistake: When Jason is squeezing Chris' head, just before the eyeball 'pops' out for the 3D effect, it's obviously a dummy's head, as the face is wider and slightly larger than that of the actor's.


Revealing mistake: Inside the barn, the webbing that the deer head is covered in is fake, as it 'pulls' like elastic when Shelly moves his along the skull. Real webbing would adhere to his bare skin.

Revealing mistake: When Jason is hitting Ali in the head with a club you see Ali move all three times he is being hit before the club is near him. (00:41:50)


Visible crew/equipment: As Rick and Chris get in the Volkswagen Bug after Shelly returns it, you can see three crew members in the backseat window reflection. (00:35:55)

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.
