Trivia: Friday the 13th Part VIII: Jason Takes Manhattan

  • Executive Meddling: 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.
  • Hey, It's That Guy!:
    • Kelly Hu, as well as noted anime and cartoon voice actress Saffron Henderson as punk rocker J.J.
    • Michael Benyaer, actor and voice artist who is probably best known for being the voice of Bob in the first, second, and fourth seasons of ReBoot, played one of the two thugs Jason kills late in the film.
    • Gordon Currie plays Miles Wolfe, one of Jason's victims. Yeah, Jason offed Nicolae Carpathia.
  • What Could Have Been: The original script called for the climactic battle to take place in the Statue of Liberty.
