Ahoy, squirts! Quint here with today’s Behind the Scenes Pic!
Today’s BTS images are a bit different. While still technically behind the scenes, these aren’t the typical on-set shots. I’m giving up two very cool images of Rob Bottin and team’s work on John Carpenter’s The Thing. First up is a line-up of Norris heads.
I think this is a pretty incredible shot, honestly and while I got it from the folks at the Practical Effects Group it’s clearly scanned from a magazine, so apologies to whichever magazine originally ran this image.
And then there’s this fantastic close look at the final creature, the Blair Monster. You don’t get to see a lot of it in the movie, but the very talented Randy Cook did some nice stop motion work on it nonetheless. There are details to this puppet that I never knew existed, most notably the lizard segment.
God, I love October! Thanks for joining along. Here’s that great shot, click to enlargen!

Tomorrow’s pic will hot-curl you to death.
