Peter Watts visits the effects shop that makes Hannibal corpses:
I have a whole subdirectory of such wondrous fans, ripe for exploitation. A few of them have turned out to be economists; I'll be exploiting them a fair bit over the next few months. But only one of these economists has a partner who makes disembodied bodies for a living.
Lesser FX houses would just build a solid mannequin, slice it up, and paint the slices. Not these guys. These guys built the body from the inside out -- viscera, skeleton, body fat, connective fascia, musculature -- and then carved it up. I don't know if mere pictures can convey the icky verisimilitude of the result.
