Friday the 13th Part V: A New Beginning mistake picture

Revealing mistake: When Pete gets his throat slashed, you can plainly see that there's no actual cut, it's just a line of stage blood. (00:26:30)

Revealing mistake: During several of the deaths committed by the impostor, look closely. The shirt sleeves are dark green instead of the dark blue sleeves of the jumpsuit the impostor wears. Clearly Tom Morga, the hallucination of Jason, did these scenes instead of Dick Wieand, Roy Burns/impostor Jason.


Revealing mistake: When Tommy is about to slice Roy's arm, you can see that he is not really holding the machete in his hand. (01:19:20)

Revealing mistake: When Pam is out looking for everybody, when they show her inside the truck, her hands don't appear to be on the wheel.


Plot hole: When the cop shows Pam the newspaper clippings they include what look to be fresh photos of the real Jason from the events of Part IV, yet no photographer is ever seen taking pictures of Jason alive in the previous films and most likely wouldn't live long enough to publish the photo. (01:25:00)
