Plot hole: When Brenda is thrown out the window, Alice immediately runs outside to see Mrs. Vorhees pull up in the jeep. How can this be if she just threw Brenda in the cabin?

Suggested correction: Mrs Voorhees was a bit of an opportunistic killer, sometimes using whatever was at hand. Since they were working on fixing the place up, there may have been many axes at the camp. Steve was using one on a stump when Marcie, Jack, and Ned arrived and since there were a lot of trees around that may need to have been removed he most likely would have had more than one. Mrs Voorhees could have left the axe she used to kill Marcie in her face when she killed her and then took a brand new one to place in the bed for the other counsellors to find.

New today Suggested correction: Maybe they were already further along the road when Annie was dropped off at the crossroads, so they never crossed paths with her.

Revealing mistake: When Alice opens the pantry door to find Crazy Ralph inside, she is looking directly at the camera as if looking at him, but a second later she's looking to her left.

Plot hole: Assuming that the shells for the shotguns were kept in the locked drawer, why didn't Alice just go ahead and try to break it open? She had the time to do it with Pamela being knocked out so why not go ahead and have the gun loaded just in case?

Suggested correction: If you're referring to when Alice hit Pamela with the frying pan, it probably never occurred to her. She thought she killed her in self defense, ending her ordeal and was safe even if she was close to being drained mentally, psychologically, and physically. Besides, how would Alice have thought that she'd find the gun again if she went back? She used the gun as a club against Pamela and left it there earlier and ran away, so Pamela might have hidden it. If you're referring to when she first found the gun, Pamela was not knocked out and Alice was panicking, not thinking straight and trying to open the drawer. She knew that Pamela could find her in the office at any second, which she did. The problem with either scenario is using the word 'assuming'. We, and Alice, aren't sure if the bullets were in the drawer, so the only time it would have been worth it to her was when she found the gun. After she thought she killed her, she wouldn't have any need for it, or so she thought, and that would fall under character mistake.

Trivia

In the scene where Alice finds Bill's body hanging on the back of the door to the generator room, the producers purposely did not tell Adrianne King what they were going to do to the body nor did they let her see the body beforehand. When she saw the body during filming it was for the first time. The scream she produced was genuine as it scared her badly. Needless to say, that entire scene was shot in one take.
