Shelley Duvall's Wendy is so unnerved it's unnerving watching her react to Nicholson's crazy Jack. Even at the beginning of the film she's so tentative and seeming to walk on eggs with Jack. This movie Jack is crazy from the word go, differing from the novel's Jack. It's been 40 years since I've seen this on a big screen, and it holds up very well.

But there is no way, within the film, to be sure with any confidence exactly what happens, or precisely how, or really why. Kubrick delivers this uncertainty in a film where the actors themselves vibrate with unease.

The Shining is terrifying for what it doesn’t do.
