Revealing mistake: When the drug "Hypnocil" is researched on the Internet, an article about the drug appears. If you pause the shot and read the article, you can see that it has nothing to do about Hypnocil. The article is about drug testing of students who engage in extracurricular activities. (00:55:10)
Revealing mistake: As soon as the drunk kid sets Jason on fire there's a few quick shots of Jason's face but there's a perfect hole right through his head where his eye is supposed to be and you can see the night sky through it.

Continuity mistake: When the girls are at Lori's, just after Kia asks them if they think she needs a nose job, the lights flicker. When they flicker Kia is holding a compact in her left hand and she begins to close it. Both hands are up by her face but then the angle changes to a wider shot and her left hand is empty and on her lap and the compact is in her right hand as she places it on the sofa.Hamster
Plot hole: The sheriff orders a 24 hour roadblock on the town, yet the van has no trouble driving to Crystal Lake.
Continuity mistake: When the teens enter the mental institution to get the dream suppressant drug, it shows a security guard drawing his pistol in alert to an intruder banging on a door. The next shot cuts to show the response of two teens hearing a single shot fired, and then cuts back to show the security guard under the door with four big dents from Jason and two bullet holes. The holes are located at the top right hand corner of the door and the other near the door handle. (00:56:20)
