Continuity mistake: When Luke and Deborah go into the tent, their shadows show Luke automatically take off the shirt she is wearing. But the next shot, when the camera goes into the tent, Deborah is once again wearing the shirt.


Plot hole: After Steven breaks out of prison, he goes to Jason's home. Then Jessica's boyfriend shows up talking on the phone and he says he will ask Jessica for permission to shoot their show at Jason's house. He should know that Jessica doesn't know she is a relative of Jason.

Continuity mistake: The note that Jessica found in Stephanie's crib changes. When she finds it, it reads "I have what you want…" and is written in blue ballpoint pen. But when Steven finds the note later, it reads "I have your baby…" and is now written in thick, black permanent marker. (01:08:35 - 01:11:15)

Continuity mistake: When Robert, who is possessed by Jason, is reaching through the car window to get Jessica and Steven, you can see his reflection on the car hood. This reflection should show Jason, as we've already seen in the movie that the host body Jason is in should show Jason in any reflection. (01:00:50)

Continuity mistake: When Deborah is impaled with a post in the tent, the amount of blood on Luke's face decreases between shots. (00:32:00)

Continuity mistake: After the female FBI agent falls over the railing and through the coffee table, the two legs closest to the screen roll away, but when the table is shown again, the legs are underneath it. (00:04:50)

Plot hole: It is never explained how Jason appears at the beginning of the film in his normal hulking form since the end of the previous film showed him being washed away from toxic waste in the sewers of New York City and turning into a little boy.

Suggested correction: The boy was another of Rennie's hallucinations. Jason awoke presumably after the toxic waste dried out the next day and retrieved his slightly melted mask then made his way back to Crystal Lake. The mask he has belonged to Jim Miller, who he took the mask from in part 8, as his other one was destroyed by Tina Shepard in part 7. Why there was an axe mark in Jim Miller's mask is anyone's guess. Probably authenticity, as it was national news that Jason Voorhees wore a hockey mask. Also, the writer/director of Friday the 13th Part VIII: Jason Takes Manhattan has stated on DVD documentaries and in books that he wanted to portray Jason Voorhees as more of a supernatural spiritual entity rather then just a walking corpse. Rennie's "visions" were more than just her own hallucinations because her dog saw one of them earlier on in the film.


Continuity mistake: The father of Jessica's baby, while in jail, had some of his fingers broken by Craitan Duke, but in the next scene, he is fighting another character and his hand with broken fingers is working fine.

Continuity mistake: When Steven gets punched by Randy there is blood filling his mouth, but a few seconds later there is barely any blood on his lips. (01:03:25)

Continuity mistake: When Steven is fighting with Randy by the police car, you can clearly see in one shot that he has his gun in the back of his pants, but later he pulls the gun out of the front of his jeans. (01:03:15)

Continuity mistake: While eating Jason's heart, the coroner's shirt is covered with the fountain of black fluid coming from his mouth, but when the assistant coroner comes in there is far less liquid on his shirt. (00:14:00 - 00:16:00)

Continuity mistake: When Steven runs possessed Robert over, black blood covers all of the bottom of his shirt, and all his trousers. But later, when he comes to the police station they're clean. (01:01:10 - 01:06:00)

Revealing mistake: Jason is being bombarded with gunshots and the machete isn't damaged at all. The bullets magically bounce right off it. And "spark".


Plot hole: It appears no one even did the slightest bit of police work in the murder of Jessica's mother, if they had they would have seen evidence that Steve's story was true. Like evidence of someone going out the window and the cop's fingerprints on the knife.


Continuity mistake: Jessica's baby changes from one scene to the time she arrives at her moms house. First, the baby doesn't have much hair. Then at the house, her hair is thicker and she seems to have grown a little.


Continuity mistake: When Debbie is in the tent with her boyfriend, she gets a condom out of the wrapper and throws it aside, still in the tent. Later on, the wrapper is outside the tent, because we see Jason step on it.


Steven Freeman: Duke! The part about being reborn through a Voorhees woman, does it have to be a living woman?
Creighton Duke: No.
Steven Freeman: Duke, that thing is in the basement with Jessica's dead mother.
Creighton Duke: Holy mother of God.

Trivia: When Steven is in Jason's house, we see the "Necronomicon", or "Book of the Dead" from the "Evil Dead" movies. He even picks up the book and flips through it. The director has said this is because Jason is a deadite, as his mother made a pact with the devil to bring him back from the dead.
