I thought this was an excellent idea for a storyline, very unique and well thought out with some genuinely chilling moments. Unfortunately the director's choice to use hand-held camera style footage for the majority of the film ruined it completely.

In a sense, it's hard to imagine the film being done any other way, as it draws a lot of inspiration from the Blair Witch Project. However with the amount of terrible movies being released in this format, I am becoming increasingly frustrated with the restrictions of the 'found footage' genre.

The overall theme of the film is familiar: a couple of mildly irritating twenty-somethings venture into the woods to a remote cabin where something sinister lurks in the shadows etc; nothing we haven't seen before. The unique aspect of the film was the methods and motives of the villain. A former artist who has become twisted and full of hate, descending into madness, he retreats into the woods where he creates bizarre pieces of 'artwork' from bones and twigs, which he then proceeds to mail to people seemingly at random.

The young couple stumble across his twisted creations and what follows is a mixture of trippy encounters and boring interviews with members of New York's art community (I won't go into too much detail).

A frustrating and inconsistent film with a few highs and many lows, hindered by its lack of direction and absence of characters to sympathize with.

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.

Limped along and got fed up and switched off half way through. Odd flash of something maybe sinister. Could have been done in 5 minutes. Bit like blair witch project of 2 people following themselves around.

The first fifteen minutes nearly put me off watching this film. The shaky camera work and stream of consciousness presentation is confusing and not much fun to watch. However it improves a lot once they start digging into Mr Jones and what he's about. From that point on it evolves into a decent horror film with some interesting twists and turns along the way. Once you understand what's going on the end is fairly predictable, but it works. I also appreciated the fact that it tried to go for a creepy atmosphere rather than the usual shock tactics most of these found footage style films go for.

There was a good idea in this somewhere but its B movieness spoiled it and it got itself all confused. Interesting though for the found footage type horror genre. It does at least bring a fresh feel to it.

Not your usual horror flick, or a blood soaked slasher fest.

When it started I thought great another found footage film, but it actually really comes into its own.

Not sure why the bad reviews.. Compared to the cheaply made naff horrors that flood the market, this actually has a good story to it and keeps you thinking..

Well worth for a look..

The film has a curious starting idea -- a young couple become obsessed with a reclusive artist, the Mr Jones of the title, who lives in the forest and specialises in spooky scarecrow-like sculptures and they try to make a documentary about him (by means of hand-held cameras, naturally). However, after an intriguing five or ten minutes the film becomes so muddled, so unbearably tedious, as to be unwatchable. One wonders if the script-writers were high on something when they put their story together as a lot of it makes very little sense. There are elements that bring to mind The Blair-Witch Project and Jeepers-Creepers but it would be an insult to either of these excellent horror films to start comparing Mr Jones to them.
