Corrected entry: During the first fight scene between Freddy and Jason in the dream world, Jason tosses Freddy into some pipes which causes water to spray everywhere. When Jason is about to attack Freddy and stops to back away from the water, it is explained that Jason is "afraid" of the water. While logical on paper, this makes absolutely no sense with the rest of the Friday the 13th movies and an earlier scene in Freddy vs. Jason. Jason has on many occasions ventured freely into Crystal Lake to kill his victims in earlier movies, and in this movie he walks all the way to Elm Street in the pouring rain. Surely if he was afraid of water he'd not have completely submerged himself in a lake, and would have taken shelter under a tree until the rain storm passed.

Correction: This is in the dream world, the unconscious mind. It could be that Jason is very well afraid of water but when awake can stomach that fear and move on. In the dream world however there is only the fear. It is the same way that someone might be afraid of spiders in real life but can walk past a spider no problem yet still have nightmares about spiders later.

Correction: Water wasn't Jason's weakness until and unless he was dreaming, and it wasn't exactly water, it was the fear of drowning, which was his original death, and Freddy exploited that weakness to torment him in the dream-world.

Correction: Jason is only afraid of water in his dreams.

Corrected entry: Jason looks different here. This takes place after Jason Goes To Hell where he had bloodied hot pink skin, silver welded on hockey mask, dark blue boiler suit. Yet here he's wearing tattered clothes with black gloves, the original looking hockey mask, and is black skinned just like he was in Friday Part 6.

Correction: I think this mistake is dubious at best. The canon of the "Friday the 13th" series is already pretty sloppy with the films contradicting one-another, and this film indeed also contain ideas and notions that contradict both franchises. (Not the least of which being that Jason was literally dragged all the way to hell at the end of "Jason Goes to Hell", but is merely "asleep" just beneath the ground at the beginning of this film.) I don't think it's a stretch to say this film is more of an "alternate universe/what if?" situation, and not really a direct sequel to "Jason Goes to Hell" and "Freddy's Dead," and thus minor cosmetic differences shouldn't really be considered mistakes.

Ah yes, couldn't really put it better myself.

Corrected entry: This is the first movie where Jason speaks. Just after he throws the table and walks towards Freddy, you can hear Jason whisper the word "die" at least four times as he walks.

Correction: After a close listen, I think that you will find that it is part of the song that is just about to play.

Corrected entry: In the end scene (spoiler) Freddy stabs BOTH of Jason's eyes, obviously blinding him. Yet throughout the rest of the fight Jason knows accurately where Freddy is, even in the final end where he uses his glove against him. Also, when he sinks away you see one eye staring up as he dies.

Correction: The two characters are essentially magical. I wouldn't think a little fast healing would be a problem.

LorgSkyegon

Correction: First of all, Gibb finds her boyfriend dead in the bed, not Lori. Second, I have just watched this scene several times and his eyes do not move at all.

Corrected entry: In the scene where Jason is on fire at the rave, one kid is throwing cups of beer on him while he is on fire. Jason then swings his machete at the kid who dodges it, instead hitting the keg which sprays the fire out. Jason then turns towards the camera after the fire is out. You then see the same kid in the background shaking and gurgling as though he was cut.

xxlaugherteexx

Correction: Jason does hit the kid. The machete goes through the kid and hits the keg.

Corrected entry: In "Jason Goes to Hell", it is stated that all the cabins at Camp Crystal Lake were torn down. Yet in this movie we see many of them, and Freddy and Jason even fight in one.

Correction: This movie ignores some of the earlier movies. Therefore they can add anything to this movie they want.

Corrected entry: When the kid wakes up and his father is sitting beside him with his neck chopped on the porch of his house, the kid hears a noise in the bushes. As he walks towards them, we get a shot of the bushes moving - if you look to the right of the bushes, the shadow of someone shaking them is visible. (00:18:35)

Correction: First of all, Blake hears the noise in the bushes in his dream, before he wakes up to find his father dead. Secondly, why shouldn't there be a shadow? There is actually someone there, namely Freddy. It's a bit sloppy of him to expose even as much as a shadow, but it is possible, espescially seeing how eager and concentrated he is on scaring and killing Blake.

Twotall

Corrected entry: In the final fight, when Freddy is knocked off the construction site and is hanging by his foot, in one shot his hat has fallen off his head, but when the camera changes back to him when hes swinging his hat is back on his head.

Correction: His hat never reappears on his head, while he's hanging there.

Mortug

Corrected entry: If you watch the final battle on the dock (I think it happens other times in the movie) Freddy's shirt comes up over his back revealing no burns. It's stated many times in all the Nightmare on Elm Street films (and this one) that Freddy's entire body was burned badly.

ang_hulk

Correction: I watched it over and over, but Freddy's shirt never flies up revealing no burns.

Corrected entry: Mark is trapped in his dream and at the window yelling for help, then he is slashed across the face by an invisible Freddy. Will and Lori look across the room, and in the mirror they see the reflection of "Freddy's Back" burned into a dead Mark's skin. Freddy would have had to have written the words backwards, in order for them to see it correctly.

Correction: Well Freddy knew they would see it in the mirror and then wrote in a way so they can see it in the mirror.

Corrected entry: When the guy from the party at the start wakes up and finds his dad sitting next to him, he taps his shoulder and his head jumps right off where Jason has cut it. There's no way it would jump up, it would just tip forwards.

Shay

Correction: It does not jump up in the air. Blake tapped his father's head and it fell sideways into Blake's arms.

Corrected entry: In one of the first scenes the two boys arrive at Lori's house, and while it's raining cats and dogs outside and one of them says "I'm soaking wet", their coats and other clothing are perfectly dry, as well as the sixpack of beer they're carying.

RoyT

Correction: Both Trey and Blake are both wet. Their clothes and hair, all wet.

Corrected entry: When Jason throws Linderman against the wall, the metal spike that stabs him isn't there. But it is there (obviously) when he gets stabbed by it. It's also not there when Jason is in that corner about to drag Freddy through the windows.

Correction: If you look, you do see a shelf bracket sticking out.

Corrected entry: In the scene where Jason comes out of the cornfield and starts killing the ravers, he kills a boy with a hat on by slashing through his chest. A few shots later you see Jason killing the same boy again from a different angle.

Correction: Actually, it is two different ravers in similar shirts with the same horizontal slash. Notice that one is wearing a beanie while the other is wearing a bucket hat - this shows they are different people.

Shay

Corrected entry: In the scene where Freddy is about to kill the girl hiding in the locker, he is hanging upside down. This shot has been reversed. His glove is on the wrong hand. It should be on his right hand but it's actually on his left.

Correction: Freddy's glove is on the correct hand. Since he is upside down, the perspective is a bit off, but it IS on his right hand.

Corrected entry: When the four teens are running away from the burning cabin in Crystal Lake, where Jason and Freddy keep fightning, you can see some crew member's arm in the frame of the main door.

Correction: First, all four teens don't run out together, they get seperated, two groups, Lori and Will and Kia and Linderman. Second, I watched both parts three times where Kia and Linderman are leaving and Lori and Will are leaving, and I don't see an arm anywhere.

Corrected entry: The house on Elm street (where the first Jason murder takes place) is supposed to be the same one as in the original, Yet there is no small window type peep hole on the front door.

Correction: The original killings by Freddy had taken place so long ago that it is possible that the new owner(s) could have made changes to the house, including the door.

Corrected entry: Whatever damage Freddy inflicts on you in the dream world happens in the real world. Well, Freddy clawed Jason's mask in the dream world, but his mask in the real world is never damaged.

Correction: In the last scene, when Jason is walking out of Crystal Lake, there are claw marks on his mask.

Corrected entry: When Freddy has Jason in his nightmare world and drops the big machine from the ceiling on him, look closely. Jason's body vanishes right before it hits but is back underneath it in the next scene.

Correction: Jasons body never moves when the tank falls. Play it in slow motion and you'll see his body doesn't move or vanish at all.

Visible crew/equipment: When Freddy is brought into the real world and is fighting Jason in the cabin, look carefully as Jason picks up Freddy and pushes him out the window, you can see a cable attached to Freddy's chest in a close up. (01:14:35)

Trivia: When Will is being administered the hypnosill at the mental institution, he sees the TV report about the murder on Elm St. Notice that the call letters for the TV station are "KRGR". Does that look like a relevant abbreviation to you?

More trivia for Freddy Vs. Jason

Question: Why was Kane Hodder disallowed to reprise the role of Jason? I know that director wanted Jason to be taller than Freddy but Kane Hodder is taller than Robert Englund. Thus, if he was hired again, Jason still would have been taller than Freddy.

Answer: This is one of those questions where we'll probably never know the real reason because different people involved have different stories as to why Kirzinger was picked over Holder. Holder himself has said he doesn't know why he didn't reprise the role, especially since he was told he would and was given a script. Some accounts say Yu wanted Jason to tower over Freddy and Kirzinger is 2" taller than Holder. One of the casting directors said Yu thought Holder's version of Jason was too campy. Meanwhile, Yu said it was New Line Cinema's decision to recast Holder because they want to change the direction of the film and used this film as a reboot of the series.
