Nice thread idea!

The Shining, easily. The Omen is ridiculous and more funny than scary.

Damn, I thought about starting this thread a few weeks back. Then I could have gotten a bunch of compliments.

So, I should watch each movie before voting, right? Cool.

I've seen The Shining a couple of times and really enjoy it, but I would vote for it ignoring its quality because of The Simpsons "Treehouse of Horror" segment it inspired:



One of my favorite Simpsons memories...

The Omen 0
The Shining 2

Great idea for a thread!

Well I like The Omen, but it can't really compare to The Shining

The Omen 0
The Shining 3

Never seen The Omen so I'm going to go with The Shining. Excellent film.

I`ve always thought the Shining overrated or in any case laid the groundwork for Jack Nicholson`s usual crazy personas in later films. I think the first Omen is a classic.

Omen 1
Shining 6

Hmm, he seems a little crazy in One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest which was made in 75 .. I'm not a Nicholson fan, but it wouldn't surprise me if he played slightly nutty/psycopathic tendency-ish characters before that as well.

Anyways, The Shining of course! No contest

Omen 1
Shining 7

I was referring more to the 80`s and 90`s period in which he was usually typecast as comical, eccentric and slighty crazy characters.
