Continuity mistake: When Scott gets his throat cut, blood pours out. Yet when Terri spins him around, there's no blood anywhere on him except a small amount on his shirt sleeves.
Continuity mistake: When Scott is dancing with the dog, in the shots from inside the cabin, the collar on his shirt is up. But from the shots outside the cabin looking in, his collar is down. (00:26:50)
Trivia: An actor/stuntman named Steve Dash actually played Jason in almost every scene, but was crestfallen when he found out he wouldn't be given on-screen credit for the role. Due to some studio red-tape, the actor credited for portraying Jason was Warrington Gillette, a stand-in who only appeared on-screen for a brief instance. (Gillette portrayed the "Unmasked Jason" under heavy makeup, who leaps through the window at the end of the film and is only on-screen for about 20 seconds.) Dash was understandably upset, as he put in almost all the work to create and play the character, but got no reward and was only credited as being Jason's stunt-double. When archival footage from this film was re-used in the next two installments in flashback, Dash was finally given the proper credit he deserved and was given sole credit for portraying Jason via archival footage.
Trivia: The movie ends with a shot of Mrs. Voorhees old wrinkled head on Jason's shrine. Originally her head was supposed to open its eyes, and smile. Steve Miner comments on commentary how he decided to get rid of the idea, as he felt it would make the movie come across as more cheap and hokey than normal.

Question: What was that first body in the woods that looked like Muffin? It couldn't have been Muffin because she shows up at the end right?
Question: At the beginning the 2 kids call Ted to get directions, but when they see their truck being towed, they leave the phone, and chase the tow truck. The truck is taken right around the corner, and Ted is outside, waiting for them. There were no pay phones showing where Ted was, and no cell phones, so how did Ted call them, and get to be right around the corner so fast?
