The reason the inserts aren't noticeable is because there aren't any it seems. Sounds like they used a complete uncut version from the BFI entirely for the widescreen and open matte instead of adding in footage to the PG-13 master from Fox, which is what they've used for the Theatrical Version.

From the IMDB, I here by cut & paste
From VAULT
The original UK version, also originally shown in US theaters with an R rating, differs from the re-rated to PG version as follows:
Tale 1: Full-motion scene of Daniel Massey hung upside down with a tap in his neck, shuddering as the waiter pours glasses of blood and hands them out. In the cut version, entire section replaced by a still frame of same with the tap optically censored.


Tale 2: After Glynnis Johns hits Terry-Thomas on the head with a hammer, blood spurts out, and he falls backward out of frame. The cut version becomes a still frame when the hammer makes contact with the head. The ending shows four shelves of her husband's body parts neatly preserved in jars, including one labeled "Odds and Ends". The cut version shows only the first two shelves.


Tale 5: When the publisher gets his hands chopped off by the paper cutter, the camera dollies in as he continues screaming, holding out his bleeding stumps.


TALES was initially trimmed in the US as well, but has been uncut on home video and tv since the 1990's.  VAULT suffered far worse from it's nutting for a re rating.

Finally got this and watched Vault last night. So glad they found it uncut in such great condition. Gave the theatrical a quick look and couldn't really see much difference in quality between the two sources. Hopefully we don't have to wait an age before someone releases some more Amicus.
