Miscellaneous 

Les is called "Brody" in the opening prologue. All of the subs and captions also read "Brody" when he's speaking. So, why is he credited as Les instead of Brody?

Revealing mistakes 

(at around 1h 25 mins) In the final scene, when Sheriff Cal Tucker is explaining to Pam the motive for Roy the paramedic snapping, he shows her a series of newspaper clippings about Jason Voorhees and his past. In one of the clippings is a picture of Jason standing and looking at the camera. How would anyone have been able to snap a picture of Jason to be printed in a newspaper?
