What combustion? more like "Vanishing Corpse" or "Psi" should this also count as not quite dead or cheating death?

It is not psi at all as no psychic powers are used to defeat him. There is an argument for vanishing corpse though, and will add it in.

She killed Freddy through mental power, just not supernatural mental power, which is why I am against adding "Magic".

turning your back on someone is not mental power by any stretch of the imagination, unless of course you are Uri Gellar?! winking smiley

It's a different kind of mental power, instead of using her mind to defeat him, she simply refused to let him use her mind to get to her, defeating him inside her dream (I think) Otherwise, how did she defeat Freddy?

Also, again, what about "Not Quite Dead"? this was used twice if I am not mistaken, the second being a "Cheating Death" instance

I can see where you're coming from with "mind power", but it isn't really "Psi" as we would normally define it. If Mouse thinks "Unique" should be applied instead I wouldn't argue.

It definitely isn't "Cheating Death" by our definition, as in the context of the film he dies. Obviously he gets resurrected in each of the sequels, but for this film, he is dead.

One thing that struck me when watching this film recently is horror film directors' conviction that shambling killers are somehow more scary than athletic, speedy ones.
If a homicidal maniac with a chainsaw came limping towards me I wouldn't be unduly alarmed, I'd just jog away, confident that he'd have run out of petrol by the time he eventually caught up.

(I know Freddie exists in a dreamworld for most of this film, so he can effectively stagger about as fast as he wants, but I'm talking in general).

But her father checks to see if she is alright and then leaves the room.
John Saxon does make me laugh here. His wife has just been killed in a rather unusual manner, and he just walks off and shuts his daughter in the same room - classic! grinning smiley

I'm sorry if I'm acting a bit of a nag about this (I seem to have that tendency, don't I?), but even as unique as the scene was, Nancy's mind was still the weapon she used to kill Krueger

Of course Robert G. Durant was dead in the context of Darkman as well, but besides this Freddy is still alive by the end of the film, and manages to kill everyone he killed in the film all over again in the final seconds

Perfect balance - Leatherface, who often shambles around, but still manages to gain very good ground and is completely relentless.

I'm beginning to come round to your point of view. We'll see what Mouse says...
I'll add Resurrection to the death - I'd forgotten Freddie eats the teenagers at the end in the form of a convertible!
