Format: Blu-ray
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.

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.

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.

Good plot idea (reminds me in a way of Pumpkinhead), but the execution is definitely a "first time effort", which it is. It is by no means talentless, far from it, but the entire sequence towards the end is more just too confusing, rather than creepy, which spoils the overall effect. The ending is also a bit too abrupt and matter-of-fact whereas when you see what is happening, it feels that it should have more emotional impact. I would still say it is definitely worth watching, and the 1-star rating on Netflix is too unkind. It's always a problem though - in the hands of an accomplished director, this would have been a much more effective film, with tighter editing and no iffy plot elements (why on earth did Mr Jones send his figures to random people, and why did their lives suffer as a result?). But then this type of film always works better as an independent, with no Hollywood polish. It is what it is, and it is an intriguing and watchable supernatural film. At shorter than 90 minutes, you won't feel you've wasted your life away.
