** The hopeful explanation: all of the victims and survivors are canonical, but the person retelling the story is getting it wrong. [[spoiler:We see five college students killed over the course of the first film -- Michelle, Damon, Tosh, Parker, and Sasha. If Sasha's producer was a student (and he did look to be around the right age), that brings the student body count to six. However, Brenda also had two other victims, Dean Adams and Professor Wexler, bringing the final total to... eight. (And [[MicrowaveTheDog one dog]].) The person telling the story may have read "eight victims of a college campus massacre" and assumed that Brenda had killed eight ''students''.]]
** The FridgeHorror explanation: the person retelling the story is right, [[spoiler:meaning that the events we saw on screen in the first film are not what actually happened -- in other words, Brenda succeeded in killing Natalie and Paul. And apparently, she also killed another student, though see above re: Sasha's producer.]]

*** Although, [[spoiler: we don't know anything about Sasha's producer, so he might have been a student for all we know. He did look to be around their age. Assuming he was, that would bump up the number of students killed during the first movie to six. Thus, if Brenda ended up killing Natalie and Paul, the sequel is indeed correct in saying that eight students were killed]].

* [[Film/UrbanLegendsFinalCut The sequel]] mentions that eight college students were killed during the events of the movie. [[spoiler:The first film only confirms the deaths of five. This, combined with Brenda's line at the film's conclusion that the end of the story was not told correctly, heavily implies that she actually succeeded in killing Natalie and Paul. And apparently, she killed someone else too.]]
** There may be a more hopeful explanation for this. [[spoiler:While only five college students were killed over the course of the first film (Michelle, Damon, Tosh, Parker, and Sasha), Brenda also had three other victims -- Dean Adams, Professor Wexler, and Sasha's producer -- bringing the total to eight (not counting [[MicrowaveTheDog the dog]]).

* One of the most common complaints about the first film is how [[spoiler:Brenda is able to pull off many of the kills and traps that she does, including rigging a body in a tree and taking down victims much larger than she is, despite having the skinny build of Rebecca Gayheart]]. The ending reveals that the entire movie is being [[FramingDevice told between people]] as something that happened to "a friend of a friend" who went to the school... in other words, an [[TitleDrop urban legend]]. And like any urban legend, details are [[UnreliableNarrator likely to have been altered]] in the retelling, exaggerating the killer's prowess and the brutality of the kills, if it even happened in the first place.
