* CaliforniaDoubling: Most of the scenes were actually shot in Vancouver, Canada.
* ExecutiveMeddling: The movie was supposed to be one-third on the boat, and two-thirds in New York, but budgetary concerns caused the studio to force the director to reverse the ratio.
** Also scenes at the Brooklyn Bridge, the Statue of Liberty, and Madison Square Garden were scripted, but never filmed for the same reason. The only recognizable New York site Jason appears at is Times Square, with most of the city scenes shot instead in budget-friendly Vancouver. Even then, failing to truly live up to its own big selling point is ''far'' from the only reason this film has its reputation for suffering a bad case of {{Sequelitis}}.

* FranchiseKiller: Creator/{{Paramount}} sold the rights to the franchise to Creator/NewLineCinema after this film's failure, marking the end of their involvement with the series until they handled the international distribution on [[Film/FridayThe13th2009 the 2009 remake]]. There was also a four-year hiatus between this film and [[Film/JasonGoesToHellTheFinalFriday the next]], the longest in the franchise's history up to that point (even if the record would very quickly be snapped).

Added DiffLines:

** Tamara's death scene was originally supposed to be a homage to ''Film/{{Psycho}}'', with Jason repeatedly stabbing her in the shower with a piece of broken mirror. This was changed due after the film-makers became worried that the MPAA would force the scene to be deleted, with Jason instead shoving her into the mirror and then stabbing her off-screen.
