I think the original looks better, It looks darker and more disurbed. I think you went overboard on blood in the second one, the first gets the idea across much more effectively. I think if you want to add text, that we should be able, at least on some level, to read it. I really don't know Ryan Morris, so in a topical sense I really can't say how well it works. From a visual standpoint though, I like it (the first one). It's very striking, and has a definite tone. It's not something I would hang in my house, but it's interesting enough in it's own right. I'm not too sure about the "Ryan Morris" text, there's something about it that doesn't fit. Like it's a little too sharp. Where everything blends into the background well, the text jumps too much. So does that design that's faded behind it.
