* BigLippedAlligatorMoment:
** Jason shaves Josh's moustache before possessing him. No explanation is given.
*** According to the two-disk DVD set ''His Name Was Jason'', which covers the making of the series over thirty years, it was an attempt to insert a [[HoYay homoerotic element]] in a series that had a great double standard in its sexual exploitation.
** The appearance of The Necronomicon from ''Franchise/EvilDead''.
*** Perhaps the Necronomicon's appearance was a bit of [[Comicbook/FreddyVsJasonVsAsh foreshadowing]]?
%%* EnsembleDarkhorse: Creighton Duke.
* FightSceneFailure: During the final showdown between fully returned Jason and the protagonists, you can clearly see Jason preparing for the impact when he is about to be hit with a shovel by Steven.
* FridgeLogic: Creighton Duke makes a considerable amount of noise about how "the only way" to permanently stop Jason is for a blood relative to stab him in the heart with a special mystical dagger that will banish him to Hell. However, it's not explained what would happen if, say, Jason's heart had been destroyed during the FBI's ambush along with the rest of his body. Or if the medical examiner had tossed it into an incinerator before it had a chance to work its mojo. Or, finally, if one of the people Jason possessed was captured and put into a thermite bath. Any of these things would result in Jason's physical body being destroyed as well as any chance of him hopping into a new one.
* HilariousInHindsight: It won't be the first time Jason has set foot in hell. [[spoiler: [[VideoGame/MortalKombatX Just ask Liu Kang.]]]]
* MeaningfulName[=/=]IronicName: On a meta level, this was the film that sent Jason to Hell by [[FranchiseKiller killing the franchise]] for nine years.
* {{Narm}}: The score for the film is very cheesy.
* {{Sequelitis}}: The film tried to bring something new to the ''Friday the 13th'' formula, which backfired badly.
* SignatureScene: The SequelHook, which has [[spoiler:[[Franchise/ANightmareOnElmStreet Freddy Krueger]] pulling Jason's mask under the ground after he is sent to hell]].
* SpecialEffectsFailure: After Jason gets stabbed with the dagger, agents of Hell sprout from the ground to drag him down under. The look of the hands...no. Reminds one of the giant foam fingers they sell at the sports games...
* {{Squick}}: Jason tries to possess the body of his baby grand-niece. When that fails, he possesses his dead half-sister instead. Through her private parts.
* TheyChangedItNowItSucks: The biggest complaint about the film was the body-hopping aspect.
* TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodCharacter:
** Diana is the half-sister of Jason, who is hinted to know about his origins. But her role is just to die early in the film and have her corpse be conveniently present for the climax.
** Since Jason is able to possess living characters, it should give him an opportunity to actually say something, ''anything'', in adulthood, and it is squandered to a half-hearted attempt to trick protagonists.
