Theres something eerie about the human eyes looking out in "Mystic", but I prefer "Chills" on account the the two running figures give us not only a sense of danger and suspense, but also because we can identify with the two of them better than the stiff, faceless figure in the other cover.

"Chills"'s monster looks a lot like Godzilla.
