Actress Kerry Noonan later went on to audition for a film entitled "Birthday Bash" in which serial killer, "Ethan," goes against a girl with telekinetic powers. While auditioning, she asked the producers: "Hey, is this Friday the 13th? I was already in one of these!" She was correct, "Birthday Bash" was the fake working title for Friday the 13th: The New Blood (1988), and "Ethan" the pseudonym given to Jason in the scripts in order to protect the film from the press during pre-production.

(at around 1h 2 mins) When Tommy and Megan are driving towards the camp, a shot is reused from the earlier police chase scene. You can tell by the reflection of the red police lights in the trees. See more »
You know what I think? I think we're dead meat.
[a little later on, after hearing Megan screaming]
REAL dead meat.
So, what were you gonna be when you grew up?

In the original script, the deaths of both Jill and Officer Pappas were more graphic. Instead of Jason pushing Nikki's face into the wall, as we see in the wide release, Jason squeezed her throat until blood spurted out. In Officer Pappas' death, Jason originally tore off his face (literally), leaving a faceless corpse staring ahead before falling down. However, veteran Friday The 13th producer Frank Mancuso, Jr. advised director Tom McLoughlin to tone down these scenes for the film, stating that the MPAA would never give the film an "R" rating with these scenes intact.

Mr. Mathews: Though you had no other acting career, I thank you for being in this, the best of the Friday sequels by far, as well as your stellar performance in Return Of the Living Dead, and to a lesser extent Return II. You have definitely made most 80s horror fans' hero list. Yes this movie is the best of the Jason sequels by far (though we all have high hopes for Jason X). Why, you ask? 1. The opening scene at the grave is not only spectacularly eerie, but it ties in with the Feldman cameo in the dream sequence in part 5 in a weird way. Nice. 2. Jason's wormface is one of the best makeup jobs in the series.
3. The whole subtle idea that the town changed its name to Forest Green to rid itself of the stigma of Crystal Lake is just beautiful. This much attention to that kind of detail is just not found in this series. 4. Don't know if you guys noticed, but this is the only film in the series that really takes advantage of the camp idea and actually has the children in attendance during the killing spree, thereby heightening the emotional empathy. Beautiful scene when he walks through the cabin.
5. The paintball scene - though the characters are way overdone, that's some nice killing. 6. The people in the Bug - more nice killing. 7. The end - nice effort at making us feel like maybe, just maybe this time Jason would be held for good - especially since logic on that subject had been blown to bits by the three before that feature Jason.
