Plot hole: Jason drags Vicky's body down the stairs. A minute later, Ginny and Paul come in the house and see nothing. Jason even has time to hide Sandra and Jeff's bodies by the time Ginny and Paul go upstairs. Not possible in a two minute time frame.

Suggested correction: We're not given a specified length of time between Vicki's murder and the time Paul and Ginny returned. He could have had enough time to hide Jeff and Sandra, but then they arrived as he was dragging Vicki down the stairs (you could hear them outside as we see this). We didn't see every closet or room, so the bodies could have been hidden anywhere.

Revealing mistake: When Jason is on top of Ginny's car, she reacts to the pitchfork through the roof a second too early. (01:10:50)

Suggested correction: She had just seen Jason through the window before he disappeared. Then the pitchfork comes the roof. Just before she screams, you can hear the pitchfork tearing through the fabric of the roof. That's what's she's reacting to.

Also, when you see the car and Jason is reaching in through the hole in the roof from the passenger side, it's pretty obvious she would have seen him before he stuck the pitchfork through. That could be another reason she react before we see the pitchfork.

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.

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)

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.
