Trivia

Author Vivian Schilling wrote and starred in the first segment of the movie simply titled Jenny Potter (or Future Shock). Schilling happens to have a minor cult status among the fans of the famous riff show Mystery Science Theater 3000 because of the 1990 movie called Soultaker (in-joke reference to Soultaker can be heard during the radio news report Jenny listens to in the car in her segment as if both movies are set in the same universe), a Sci-Fi title she starred in and which the show covered, and it ended up being one of their most popular episodes.

Scary as hell!
19 March 2000 | by plazaentSee all my reviews

One woman, by herself in a house for 45-minutes of screen time, doesn't sound like a formula to hold you on the edge-of-your-seat... but FUTURE SHOCK is truly as thrilling as they come! Writer / star Vivian Schilling takes on those little fears we all suppress, and enlarges them to terrifying proportions, so don't watch this film alone!
