In the previous movies, Jason had a misshapen and asymmetrical face. His left eye was normal but his right eye was bulging and "dead"-looking. In this film, he has no left eye (as a result of his injury at the end of Friday the 13th: The Final Chapter), and his right eye appears perfectly normal.

Factual errors 

When Tommy runs into the sheriff's office to tell him Jason's alive, the sheriff recognizes him and asks about Tommy's family, to which Tommy replies, "Yes, Jason killed them." This is inaccurate. Tommy's sister was not killed by Jason. Only his mother was.

Near the end of the movie, just after Jason breaks the boat in half and sinks to the bottom of the lake, you can see Jason has his hockey mask on. A few frames later, when we see Tommy swimming in the water, if you look closely, you can see that Jason has his hockey mask off, revealing his rotted face. Then when Jason grabs Tommy's leg and pulls him down, Jason has his mask on again.

Factual errors 

(at around 1h 21 mins) Megan starts the motor on the boat to attack Jason, yet the boat never moves. If the motor were running and under water, the boat would have taken off.

(at around 24 mins) Jason decapitates three of the paintballers in a single horizontal swing of his machete. Considering they are all of different heights, this would be impossible.
