he looks like a healed burn victim, not a dead one
Indeed, looks like remake Freddy must've died several months after the burning. Had he died right there in the burning house his wounds would look fresh and gory.
why are you two assuming that the burnt freddy we've all seen is directly after his death? according to the original, and I'm sure the remake is doing the same, freddy was burned years before he went after nancy and her friends. he wouldn't look freshly burned after so many years had passed. for all we know, freddy could look completely different when he actually dies than when he returns years later. if you are suggesting that he should not appear healed because he's dead (and dead tissue doesn't heal) than, in that case, I understand. then again, we are speaking of a monster that haunts you in your dreams, so I guess I shouldn't get too critical....lol
