How the hell can anyone choose betwen these?!?!
It's simple, you just have to click on the movie poster for "The Shining".
It's simple, you just have to click on the movie poster for "Alien".
Well now you've made it harder, one of you says Alien the other The Shining, which one is it!
You pick the one that's scary. And really, only one of them was.
@BrendanH: Amen to that. One of these is the greatest horror movie ever made. The other is incomprehensible crap. (i.e.: It's simple, you just have to click on the movie poster for "Alien".)
The Shining was creepy, but yes, Alien was far more scary. I imagine that Dante had creatures like the Alien in mind as tormentors for damned souls in the Inferno, terrifying arbiters of torture and evisceration that only the truly disturbed could dream up.
It's close, but Alien wins.
Face huggers. Chest bursters. Android betrayal. And terrifying and unique title monster. All set in a claustrophobic spaceship full of awesome. The Shining is brilliant, but Alien just has more nightmare fuel by far.
Kubrick's direction, Nicholson's performance, the isolation, surrealism, lingering sense of dread. Yeah, The Shining takes it for me. Alien's great though.
Wow,this is tough.I love Alien.But The Shining is my favourite horror film.Both movies develop a spooky atmosphere.
Alien had a bigger impact.
The Shining it is.Ridley can't compete with the genius of Kubrick.
Good one. The Shining. Next.
