I'm kind of surprised no one's commented on this match-up...Anyways, Kubrick wins for relying on atmosphere and tension although Demme shouldn't be dismissed.
I agree with emkang. The Shinning has the creepy atmosphere nailed, and as I always say, nostalgia trumps all for me, and the Shinning was one of the first scary movies I ever saw.
Good Clash! Both of them are Scary,scary thrillers with a great sense of immersion n' atmosphere. I agree with my fellow reviewers and gotta give this to The Shinning, you can't be craziest than Jack on this one.
Both great classics! But Kubrick's The shining wins here for me. "Here's Johnny!!"
The Shining is more entertaining than Silence of the Lambs.
Not too difficult, at first it seems like a tough choice but the Shining is clearly superior in my eyes, not that I harbor dislike for The Silence of the Lambs.
The Shining was great, psychological fun the first time I saw it. But I'm never in the mood for it anymore except around Halloween time. I can watch Silence anytime and enjoy it.
The Shining by far. Anthony Hopkins was amazing though.
silence of the lambs
Ill pick The Shining because if it wasnt for Hopkins Silence would have sucked.
Silence of the Lambs. I also enjoyed the Shining, even though I'm not a Kubrick fan.
Silence of the Lambs! The Shining stinks!
The Shining it is. But extremely tough decision...
The Silence of the Lambs is so much more unsettling. It's an easy winner here.
Gotta go with the silence of the lambs
Silence of the Lambs is simply the far better film.
The Shining. Period
I've gotta give it to The Shining.
Jack Torrance has nothing on Hannibal Lecter.
I'm just going to bash your brains in.
Deranged Hopkins beats psychopathic Nicholson this time around.
