Editorial Reviews

Scott (Jon Foster of Stay Alive) and Penny (Sarah Jones of Sons Of Anarchy) just moved to a remote cabin to escape the pressures of the world and breathe new life into their art. They will soon discover they are not alone: an infamously reclusive artist known only as Mr. Jones lives nearby. He doesn't like to be disturbed, and only comes out at night when he drags his strange, sinister sculptures deep into the woods. But when Scott and Penny's curiosity leads them to venture too close for Mr. Jones comfort, he plunges the young couple into a nightmare world of mayhem, madness and mind-bending terror. Diane Neal (Law & Order: SVU) and David Clennon (John Carpenter's The Thing) co-star in this startling tale from debut director Karl Mueller (writer of The Divide) and from the producer of the Sundance hit The Pact.

Before I sat down to watch MR. JONES, I purposely made sure not to research the film or even look it up on imdb.com. Although other people’s opinions, especially those of esteemed critics, do not hold any sway in my personal assessment of films, I did this primarily because the plot was so intriguing that I wanted to be completely surprised. And let me tell you, I was definitely impressed! This treasure of a film from the Tribeca International Film Festival is an excellent horror flick, full of both originality and suspense.

In a genre full of overused ideas and tired concepts, I find it extremely refreshing when a film like this comes along. The plot is not complex, but it is one of those you definitely have to focus on to stay up with the film. And while the concept is simplistic in nature, the movie will take you in a wildly entertaining ride.

MR. JONES has some great cinematography, although the majority of it is shot from a first-person perspective (some is third-person, when one of the characters sets the camera down). But this is not your run-of-the-mill found-footage video. The shots in this film are carefully crafted, and give major credibility to the authenticity of the frights. As a result, the camerawork is a big contributor to the chilling atmosphere of the film as a whole.

The acting is first rate, with Jon Foster and Sarah Jones heading up the small but talented cast. I am particularly impressed with the way Jones conveys fear with her eyes; many actresses try to accomplish this but it usually comes across as forced. Jones, to her credit, pulls this off with ease. The result is a much more immersive (and therefore frightening) movie experience.

There’s not really any gore in MR.

Mr. Jones was not what I expected it be. Not by a long shot. I thought it would be something along the lines of The Collector or something like that. What I got instead is a surrealistic subconscious hallucinatory nightmare. If any of those 4 words is utilized in a description of a movie, I snatch it up immediately. Very rarely are all 4 used together in the SAME movie. Not in a few decades anyway.

The production values are strong. So is the acting. The story is novel. The pacing is perfect. The visuals are effective and compelling. Sound is as well. Great job, guys!

The less you know about the story the better, as it is best enjoyed by entering the POV of the protag and discovering the layers and what they mean. I do not want to classify or otherwise crack this nut open for you. The pleasure should be all yours. Hesitate not, horror fanatics. I am going to purchase the blu ray and add it to my collection. That's the strongest endorsement I can give it.

I love all types of horror, scary, spooky,twisted tales of carnage, and of course ghost stories....to be honest folks,...well,... im not sure what to make of this film.. The production quality was above the average (footage) films....the acting was good,the leading actress was very cutesie hot, the lead actor was convincing enough for me to care to (stay tuned in) to see whats going to happen to this (unsuspecting couple).???
BUT HONESTLY I DONT KNOW WHAT TO MAKE OF THIS FILM???....it was creepy interesting..and moved at a good pace ,flowed well....then the end....i was left dumbfounded as to (what just happened) . NOW IM NO ESTEEMED CRITIC, LIKE THE FAMOUS (KEITH R.SAUERWAD) and i know my spelling is not as sharp as my sword play..and il admit my view point is far from normal....but this movie had me wondering,????WHAT JUST HAPPENED??? , WHAT DID I JUST WATCH??? now i know everyone has a different point of view, so this one is a dice role, for those of you that are brave enough to view... :) CHECK IT OUT..!!

Format: DVD
Scott (Jon Foster) and Penny (Sarah Jones) decide to go away for a year and live in a remote area, a magical house where they never have to eat and go to town for food. Scott wants to film their being away from technology. The movie starts out incredibly bad, some by design. They come across some oddly made "scarecrows" which Penny recognizes as the art of "Mr. Jones" an unknown artist who has sent these pieces to people. Their new goal is to film the artwork and maybe but together a coffee table book or something.

The movie contains boring interviews as filler, one of which gives us an explanation, which repeats itself. The plot (POSSIBLE SPOILER) reminded me of the Jeffrey Konvitz 70's blockbuster. It isn't until the last 30 minutes does the intensity factor go anywhere. The acting was okay, but when you have someone beating on a door yelling "Penny, Penny..." you can't help but think they should have chosen a different name.

The film shows some originality over its hand held counterparts, but suffers from the same problem. Constant close up scenes of a guy's face or film of someone running with the camera makes for crappy viewing. They took a good film concept and cheapened it.

Recommend as a rental.

I first heard of "Mr. Jones" because of Pumpkinrot. If you don't know what Pumpkinrot is, he/she is a mysterious artist who specializes in Halloween decorations and "stumpery."

And those weird, unsettling sculptures of bone and wood are at the heart of "Mr. Jones," a low-budget horror movie that starts off as a found footage movie, works through an eerie search for a mysterious artist... and becomes a weird hallucinatory cascade in the final act. Director Karl Mueller stumbles with the found-footage format, but the mysterious ending and creepy atmosphere work well.

Scott (Jon Foster) and Penny (Sarah Jones) are having some marital problems, so they rent a house out in the wilderness so Scott can film a documentary on... something. He hasn't decided what, so he just sort of rambles around looking at wildlife. But then a strange person in a hoodie snatches his backpack, and he stumbles across a strange sculpture made of branches.

He and Penny investigate the nearby house where the stranger lives, and find a hidden basement filled with even more strange sculptures. Penny finally figures out who it is -- the famous artist known as "Mr. Jones." Nobody knows his true identity -- he just mails his creations to people.

With information and access that nobody else has, Scott finally has a subject for his documentary. He begins investigating the people who know about Mr. Jones' work -- the people who received it (and are sometimes haunted by nightmares), curators, experts, and so on. But when he and Penny prepare to finish their work, they make the mistake of stealing one of Mr. Jones' sculptures... and find themselves in a nightmare of madness that threatens to destroy them.
