How the Crew Created Cassidy’s Severe Burns

For Cassidy’s severe burns, the creators chose practical effects over CGI, letting the actors actually see what they’re working with. “I think he looks incredible, he looks disgusting. There’s clumps of hair all over him, there’s peeling skin…” explains actor Ricky Mabe (Miles), the poor old mayor that gets fed to Cassidy so he can survive.
