I'm surprised that this hasn't been talked about yet i guess I will be the first Shining is my choice
The Shining is an AWESOME movie, it really is. Yet, I feel much more attached to the characters in Scream. My favorite character in the Shining is the house.
The Shining...but this is a farely close call.
The Shining, without a doubt
Scream doesn't come close
Both films are their own beasts, so this is not a really fair match-up. "The Shining" is a psychological horror film while "Scream" is a meta-humored slasher flick. Both are outstanding in their own strengths. It's gonna come down to the person's subjective preferences. In my case, I pick "Scream." "The Shining" feels a little outdated when I rewatched it a few weeks ago.
The Shining by far.
Finally I've watched the Shining theatrical cut. Much better than European cut, even though it's longer. Anyways, it always beats Scream, no matter what.
Yeah, gotta go The Shining
Scream the best Horror film of the 90s vs the Shining top 5 greatest Horror film period.
I love Scream but at times it goes a bit overboard with its meta-references. If you're going to break the fourth wall so often and so blatantly, might as well show the film-crew surrounding the actors. Strangely I also find The Shining's moments of over-the-top humor funnier than Scream's, though only one of these purports to be a horror-comedy. And in contrast to Craven's playful approach, Kubrick subverts horror tropes more subtly, more sincerely, sans winks, which in my opinion makes The Shining eerier and more haunting than Scream.
