Friday the 13th Part 2

Plot hole: How does Jason know where Alice lives? Plus she lives in what looks like a boarding house, how come nobody heard her screams? No way everyone was a sound sleeper or everyone was out somewhere at the time.

Visible crew/equipment: When Terri is back at the cabin looking for a knife, she crouches down giving us a clear view of the mirror. Look closely, you can see a crew member carefully moving in the right side of the mirror. (00:48:00)

Mortug

Plot hole: When the counselors are dividing up who is going into town to the bar and who is staying, Paul tells them only a limited number can go because there are only two cars. They leave in a little bug-looking car and a pick-up truck. Then, when the girl is freshening up for the guy in the wheelchair, she goes outside to what is presumably her car, searches the front seat, and finds the hair brush she is looking for. I guess technically, there are only 2 cars and 1 "truck" but the truck is the other vehicle that goes into town, so presumably he meant 2 "vehicles" which would be incorrect since a 3rd was obviously left behind. (00:42:15 - 00:57:15)

Continuity mistake: When Sandra and Jeff sneak off to Camp Blood they walk right along the waterline with the lake on their left, yet after crossing the barbed-wire fence, the lake (in the background) is on their right; this was a mirrored image.

Continuity mistake: When Ginny shows up at the campgrounds late, as she gets out of her car to go speak with Paul, she pushes the driver-seat sunsheild down. After their talk, she goes back to the car and the sunsheild is up. (00:20:35 - 00:21:55)

Other mistake: When Jenny is hiding in front of the yellow car you can see the top of her head yet Jason doesn't see it.

Other mistake: When Jason sneaks up behind the cop and raises the hammer to whack him, the angle shows it aiming for the cop's neck, but in the continuing shot, he strikes the back of the cop's head. (00:45:35)

Continuity mistake: When Jason comes smashing through the window at the end, to attack Ginny who is getting up from the cot, the camera angles are inconsistent with the attack. First he is lounging at her from behind, to grab her. Then his distorted face is suddenly at her left shoulder before he's even touched her Then she's looking back at him and screaming before his hands even touch her and pull her out of the window. (01:24:20)

Revealing mistake: When Jeff and Sandra are in the woods, they bend down to examine a mangled animal. You can see that the animal has human teeth, not animal teeth.

Plot hole: How did Jason, who lived in a shack, with no electricity, knowledge of worldly things or how to travel, let alone geography, know where to go and kill Alice?

Other mistake: Vicki enters the darkened cabin and flips a switch on a nearby lamp, to discover the power is out. But as she grumbles and crosses to another table lamp that is unplugged, she plugs it in, and suddenly the whole cabin lights up.

Suggested correction: The power wasn't out, the bulb in the lamp burnt out. We see this happen when Terry enters the cabin earlier looking for a knife. She flipped the switch, then there was a flash of light before going dark.

Bishop73

Revealing mistake: Notice when Jenny pees it's shown just pouring out. But she's lying flat and her jeans would obviously absorb most of it. But it just pours out like she's standing up with no jeans on. (01:14:30)

Character mistake: Ginny is supposed to be put head first into the ambulance, not feet first. All the monitoring equipment is in the front of the head. (01:24:20)

Continuity mistake: When Jason takes the spear, he tosses the mask down, on the fifth step up. Later, when Vicky goes upstairs, the mask is on the sixth step up. (00:59:25 - 01:01:50)

Paul: Ginny, put your car on the lot, okay? This place is starting to look like a Burger King. Um, where was I?
Ted: You were about to give your "Let's keep our shit together" speech.

More quotes from Friday the 13th Part 2

Trivia: An actor/stuntman named Steve Dash actually played Jason in almost every scene, but was crestfallen when he found out he wouldn't be given on-screen credit for the role. Due to some studio red-tape, the actor credited for portraying Jason was Warrington Gillette, a stand-in who only appeared on-screen for a brief instance. (Gillette portrayed the "Unmasked Jason" under heavy makeup, who leaps through the window at the end of the film and is only on-screen for about 20 seconds.) Dash was understandably upset, as he put in almost all the work to create and play the character, but got no reward and was only credited as being Jason's stunt-double. When archival footage from this film was re-used in the next two installments in flashback, Dash was finally given the proper credit he deserved and was given sole credit for portraying Jason via archival footage.

Question: What was that first body in the woods that looked like Muffin? It couldn't have been Muffin because she shows up at the end right?

Answer: It never really says what the body is, but I'd assume it were a rabbit or some other small woodland creature. It can't be Muffin because, like you said, Muffin appears later on.
