While this starts off ok and becomes more promising,it ultimately flops.
The story of a mysterious MR JONES is unleashed as the two main characters go away to the middle of nowhere for a break from life. The characters are alright and she is very pretty but there isn't a lot of depth to them. He is obsessed with filming things and that only interests us and him for so long. Well anyway,they encounter a problem with crows flying into their home and a stranger attracting their attraction all the way to his fixed abode. There they find out who he is and what he's about,an artist with an eye for creepy things if you like,he builds weird scarecrows. But it soon becomes a question of is it the crows that are the real problem and is he a danger?
From here,the creepy feeling starts to build more but only till say the last 15 - 20 minutes,there it just gets muddled and weird and comes up with a twist that has been done before and far better,although i was left a little baffled as to what exactly was going on. So for a fair while,i was into this and enjoyed the tension of something wicked about to happen,but just couldn't care less for the last punch in story. Sorry,but this left me feeling cheated after grabbing my attention.

This is a low budget horror film, which works in part as a "found footage" movie.
Scott and Penny are a cute, thirty-something American married couple, suffering from an early mid-life crisis. They sell up everything and decide to live for one year in a small, secluded house in some woodlands. Scott plans to make a film about their year of going back to nature (part of going back to nature for him means coming off his meds for depression).
A couple of months into the stay, the couple stumble across a nearby shack. Down in the basement is a collection of gruesome looking scarecrows with all manner of weird and wonderful appendages. They look like something which might have been created by H. R. Giger. Penny discovers that the scarecrows are the work of a celebrated artist known as Mr Jones, whom she compares to Banksie, and she's soon making plans to publish a coffee table book using photos of the disturbing creations.
The film then does an irritating detour, with somewhat dull interviews of art historians and art dealers, giving a history of the life of Mr Jones. It's an incongruous segment of the movie, which felt like a very clumsy (and premature) device for revealing the danger that Scott and Penny might be facing. The interviewees explain that Mr Jones was in the habit of sending his startling creations to people as gifts, but with disturbing results. They also explain that you don't ever make contact with Mr Jones...
The two lead actors give perfectly competent performances. The trouble is that they play a rather dull, squabbling couple, who didn't have anything interesting to say. A lot of the film takes place at night when you can't see very much, perhaps indicative of the movie's low budget.

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.

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.

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.
