Episode Quotes
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.
