Jason Goes to Hell: The Final Friday

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.

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.


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.


Revealing mistake: When Jason (in Robert's body) is shot in the head at the end of the hall, a close up reveals the bullet hole to be obviously just makeup. (01:05:35)

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.
