Those are two wildly different covers. The first conveys an R.L. Stine-esque mood, but the imagery makes it look like it was thrown together in the ol' Movie Maker of the 90s. Although I think the typography is clever, the overall image looks hokey and lighthearted. This can totally work -- if your genre is fit for it.
My only qualm about the "eye" is that it is very overdone; on the other hand, there is a reason it's overdone and that's because it is simple and to the point! Personally, I like the eye better. Your prose is sharp and of sound quality. The thriller-aspect to the book better suits the "eye" than it does the "Stine".
