Friday the 13th Part 2

Continuity mistake: In the opening scene, the head of Mrs Voorhees that Alice finds in the refrigerator is a completely different head that the one of her on Jason's shrine to his mother at the end of the movie. They look nothing alike.

Upvote valid corrections to help move entries into the corrections section.

Suggested correction: The opening scene takes place just two months after the first movie, so the head was still relatively "fresh." There is then a bit of a time-jump after the opening scene, and the rest of the film takes place five years later, as indicated by dialogue during the campfire scene. (Paul specifically says "For five long years he's been dormant.") We can assume that the head simply rotted more in the meantime, which is why it looks different.

Trivia: Part of the reason Alice (the survivor of the first film) is only onscreen during the first scene and is killed off early is because the actress portraying her (Adrienne King) was dealing with a real-life stalker and was trying to limit her acting appearances.
