Trivia:

  • The film was originally written to have Corey Feldman as the star, reprising the role of Tommy Jarvis, but he was already too busy filming The Goonies. The movie was rewritten to have Feldman's appearance limited to a cameo.
     
  • The scene in which Pam attacks Jason with the chainsaw was shot on Halloween night in 1984.
     
  • "Victor Faden" can be seen written on the outhouse wall behind Demon. This is the name of the mental patient that hacked Joey to death and was taken away by the police. Many believe that this was put there to insinuate that maybe Victor had escaped and is committing more murders.
