    • Host: Item number three You'll probably recognize this quaint figurine. The dead eyes, the sewn lips. The kind of thing that usually infests nightmares. And that happens to be precisely what it is. A nightmare of the first order. Its title: Logoda's Heads.

    • Major Crosby: People die in Africa just like they die all over the world. The only difference here is that they don't always bury them.

    • Kyro: I have avenged your brother in my own way. I knew Logoda could make the heads speak. But my magic is stronger. You see... I know how to make them kill.

    Notes (2)

    • To pad this 13-minute episode out to 30 in syndication, footage of an unrelated jungle movie is incorporated. Additional voiceover work is provided by Tim Matheson, and reaction shots of Brock Peters and Denise Nicholas are spliced in. Since there is a female doctor, named Irene Winston in the voiceover, in the movie footage, we find out who the leader of the expedition was. Once the episode itself begins, there is additional voiceover work to make it appear that Henley is mentioning Irene's name in dialogue.

    • This episode is based on the short story "Logoda's Heads" by August Derleth. This story was first published in Strange Stories (April 1939).
