Trivia: Kane Hodder, who portrays Jason, was severely burned over much of his body during a stunt-gone-wrong some years prior to this film, and as a result, the skin of his body (other than his head and face) is somewhat discolored and disfigured. One day after filming, he was peeling the Jason costume and makeup off his body, when the young child of a crew-member (who had been brought to set to see what it was like to make a movie) became frightened of his burned skin. Hodder calmly and sweetly picked up and hugged the child, explained that his body "just looked a bit different" but was nothing to be afraid of, and let the child touch the skin on his arm to see that it wouldn't hurt him. The child immediately calmed down and had a fun time talking to Hodder. It was seeing this that made director Adam Marcus (and later hearing that Hodder spent much of his free time volunteering at children's hospitals) realize that despite often playing violent or evil characters, Hodder "had a heart of gold."
