Friday the 13th Part 2

New this month Other mistake: When Jason sneaks up behind the cop and raises the hammer to whack him, the angle indicates the hammer is aimed at the cop's neck. But in the following shot he strikes the cop at the back/top of his head. (00:45:35)


Other mistake: Right at the part where Crazy Ralph is looking in on Paul and Ginny. Ralph hears a breaking of a stick behind him. You can see Jason put the barbed wire up and over the tree. How is that possible? He would have to whip it around the tree, not over it. (00:30:20)

Continuity mistake: When Scott is dancing with the dog, in the shots from inside the cabin, the collar on his shirt is up. But from the shots outside the cabin looking in, his collar is down. (00:26:50)

Continuity mistake: When Scott gets his throat cut, blood pours out. Yet when Terri spins him around, there's no blood anywhere on him except a small amount on his shirt sleeves.


Visible crew/equipment: As the camera moves in on the shower curtain when Alice is taking a shower, the shadow of the camera is seen on the curtain. (00:08:35)

Revealing mistake: When Ginny has run out to her VW Bug and is attempting to start it, Jason is supposed to be back in the house just on his way out to get her. But if you look at Ginny sitting in the car, in the lefthand corner of the windshield you can see a reflection of the top of Jason's hood. He was there all the time, crouched down beside the fender just waiting for his cue to pop up. (01:07:45)

Continuity mistake: When Ginny puts on her red robe and fixes her hair in front of the mirror, some of her fringe is sticking out. When it cuts her hair is hanging down perfectly. (00:28:35)

Visible crew/equipment: When Ginny and Paul walk down the stairs after they found the bed drenched in blood, Paul walks by the camera and you can see the camera's shadow on his chest. You can tell it's the camera's shadow, because when it cuts Ginny walks the same way and no shadow falls on her chest. (01:04:35)

Deliberate mistake: At the beginning, Alice turns on the tea kettle and it starts whistling less than a half a minute after it's turned on. It'd take alot longer. (00:10:00)

More quotes from Friday the 13th Part 2

Trivia: The movie ends with a shot of Mrs. Voorhees old wrinkled head on Jason's shrine. Originally her head was supposed to open its eyes, and smile. Steve Miner comments on commentary how he decided to get rid of the idea, as he felt it would make the movie come across as more cheap and hokey than normal.
