    I'm hard pressed to remember 2/3 of the trilogy!

    I never saw this until it was first released on VHS, but many years before that I do remember visiting the Universal Studios Tour where they had a small museum display and seeing the infamous Zuni doll in person.

    There's a very small piece of footage missing from the DVD version of the Zuni doll story (or perhaps it was edited out before the film was broadcast in the first place) as Karen Black tries to flee her apartment. I'm really hoping to find it included in this release.

    There's a moment when Amelia traps the doll and runs to the kitchen to grab a screwdriver so she can pry open the lock on her front door, which the doll has twisted to prevent her escape. The thing is, we never see her notice the locks are bent; we never see her try to use the front door till this moment. Amelia just automatically runs for the screwdriver. So I'm assuming there was a moment where she attempts to get out, realizes the locks are bent out of shape, and THEN runs for the screwdriver.

    One of the very few TV presentations back then that scared the hell out of me as well.

    I don't remember the first two stories either.

    One was a mousey librarian who'd seduce college students then kill them. Another was a pair of twins, one good one evil (or something).
