Sean S. Cunningham came up with the title of the film, and placed an ad in the trade papers to create interest in the movie, prior to having a script.
Oh, good Lord! So young. So pretty. Oh, what monster could have done this?
Alice: Bill's out there.
(at around 22 mins) When Annie trips in the woods and backs up against the tree, her hair and the amount of leaves in it changes in every shot.
We see giant letters proclaiming 'Friday the 13th' moving towards the screen and crashing into and smashing a pane of glass.
A second version of Bill's death was also filmed and used in earlier theatrical releases and home cassette video prints. Bill dies in the generator room. Bill walks in to the generator room, removes his red raincoat and places in the background. He then tinkers with the generator for a bit. From the viewer's perspective, it looks like someone is creeping up behind him. When Bill looks up into the camera, his hand is stabbed to the table from behind. Mrs. Voorhees drags him backwards. There is quite a struggle and the scene was disturbing. Bill's throat is eventually slit and we see him drop to the ground, only seeing his feet. He is then dragged outside. In the next scene, Alice wakes up shouting for Bill. The footage today in the R-rated prints only shows Alice finding Bill dead.
