(at around 43 mins) The car registration sticker before the car wash scene is "04 09", these two numbers together make "13" viewed as an unlucky number. See more »
(at around 1h 12 mins) Sprinklers work by holding back water with a heat sensitive liquid filled glass bulb or soldered struts and the heat from a fire burst the bulb/melts the solder allowing water out. In the film the sprinkler head is open, with no bulb or struts so the system must be drained down and the main valve shut (or water would be gushing out all the time).
In which case you could fire a flamethrower at it, never mind a bit of burning wood, and it wouldn't activate. See more »

Opening credits run over a "greatest hits" of the kills in earlier installments, presented as 3D CGI X-rays. See more »
This was the worst entry in the series for the following reasons:
1. At approximately 80 minutes the film is too short and there isn't any sort of time given to building up tension.
2. Pretty much all of the deaths are given away in the previews, so when someone dies its no surprise whatsoever. By taking away the surprise aspect the movie was ruined.
3. There is even less of a plot here then the other 3. Granted the basic premise is the same but they didn't even try here.
4. The deaths themselves were very "meh" and fake looking. Way too much CGI was used. Not only that but they cut away from what probably would have been the most visually interesting death. 5. No Tony Todd. He was seen in the first 2 and heard in the 3rd one. At this point the fans expect to see him. They should have tried to get him in here somehow.
I could go on and on. I hope that if they make a 5th one that James Wong (who directed the first and third films) returns to give the series a proper send off as the David Ellis entries to the franchise (the second and fourth films) are definitely the weakest links in the series. To his credit though, part 2 did probably have some of the best deaths in the series (opening premonition, fire escape ladder, and plate glass).
