Trivia

The scene of Lana (Rebecca Wood) and Billy (Bob DeSimone) was originally written for Friday the 13th: The Final Chapter (1984), but for unknown reasons wasn't used and put into this film instead.


Quotes

Sheriff Tucker: What the hell's going on here?
Roy: You talking to me, Sheriff?
Sheriff Tucker: Huh?
Roy: I thought you were talking to me.


Goofs

(at around 52 mins) Obvious stunt double for Tommy is beating up on Junior at the trailer park.


Alternate Versions

There is an alternate version of the film which runs 91 minutes and contains several small and mostly inconsequential differences. These are:

  • "Version 2" is in the lower right hand corner throughout the movie.
  • There is no close-up of Jason pulling the machete out of Neil's stomach during the opening sequence.
  • Duke's (the paramedic) line is altered when he sees Joey's body. In the original version he says "Bunch of pussies..." while in Version 2 he says "I'll be damned...".
  • There is a different angle briefly used in Pete's death.
  • The scene in which Ethel yells at Junior as he is eating his stew is re-edited to remove the profanity, and uses some different angles.
  • When Demon is about to open the outhouse door, an alternate camera angle is used and some of the profanity he uses is cut from the scene.
  • After Junior is decapitated there is an alternate angle of Ethel in the kitchen, and her dialog is slightly altered.
  • The scene of Robin going to bed is re-edited to exclude some of her nudity and some dialog.
  • Before the above scene is a scene of Violet in her room which originally was part of a scene which occurred a few minutes later. When the scene happens a few minutes later, the footage that was previously used is not present.
  • When Pam fights off Roy with the chainsaw, she hits him twice in shoulder. Only the second hit appears in the original version.
  • When Roy dies, the camera stays on Pam, Tommy and Reggie instead of showing Roy falling on the spikes.
