(at around 32 mins) During the close-up shots of the children sleeping in the cabin one of them has a copy of French existentialist author Jean-Paul Sartre's novel No Exit. This is most likely intended as a joke. The book's plot is about three deceased souls who are brought to Hell and lie about their reasons for being brought there. After being stuck there and failing to find a way out, one of the characters comes to the conclusion that "Hell is other people."
This is a man's game. It requires a man's cunning, a man's intelligence...
Katie: ...with a woman's touch.
(at around 31 mins) Jason's machete disappears from his hand as he walks after Steven through the woods.
During the end credits, actor Corey Feldman's name is misspelled "Cory".
In the original script, the deaths of both Jill and Officer Pappas were more graphic. Instead of Jason pushing Nikki's face into the wall, as we see in the wide release, Jason squeezed her throat until blood spurted out. In Officer Pappas' death, Jason originally tore off his face (literally), leaving a faceless corpse staring ahead before falling down. However, veteran Friday The 13th producer Frank Mancuso, Jr. advised director Tom McLoughlin to tone down these scenes for the film, stating that the MPAA would never give the film an "R" rating with these scenes intact.
