Trivia

Jason's mask in this film was cast from the same mold as the original mask from Friday the 13th Part III (1982), but was modified slightly; in addition to the damage seen in the mask (the axe cut and propeller damage), the edges of the mask have been trimmed to make it smaller, to allow more of actor Kane Hodder's head to be seen around the mask.

Goofs

(at around 1h 15 mins) When Tina is throwing the pot against Jason we can see it will hit him in his chest. In the next shot it hits him in the head. See more »

the goreiest, if the MPAA didn't cut out the goods
4 February 2007 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

This is my favourite Friday the 13th in the series. It is definitely the goreiest, well would've been if the MPAA didn't edit out the good gore content. Apart from that, a really good slasher. Jason looks his best in the film, and no wonder he has the taste for blood. A solid story, with good plot and the stupidest ending, the original ending was cut because it was too similar to part one and three, another ending I saw was Tina's dad, more rotted, that shouldve been the ending, because you can see he was in the lake more, then just a lil bit of mud on his face. but it was funny. Another funny thing is seeing Terry Kiser (Burnie) at a cabin at a lake, you could say another Weekend at Burnies, when he dies once, but isn't seen walking around and thought not to be dead, we have Jason doing that, walking, stop, tilting head, kill, walk, stop, hide, kill. That is all that is needed in a slasher, and some girls running around topless screaming for help. If you want to survive, don't scream, don't have sex, get drunk and do drugs, run to your car and drive away, but be careful, Jason might be behind or in your car.
