Low budget shocker that begins with your average found-footage set up before gradually morphing into a David Lynch style nightmare. While nowhere near on a par with Lynch's work, Mr Jones has enough originality and unsettling atmosphere to satisfy those looking for something deeper than a standard horror flick.

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.

Scott and Penny move out to a remote cabin to break from the world but to continue their work on an art documentary. They find an idyllic lifestyle until stumbling on some strange scarecrow artwork which they recognise as belonging to the strange 'Mr Jones'. He quickly becomes their obsession.

The film starts extraordinarily well building some backstory for Scott and Penny but once the scarecrows are found the story starts derailing. Mr Jones lives very close to their 'remote' cabin but it takes them about seven weeks to work this out. Once we reach this point there is far too much filming 'face cam', as the couple carry cameras which can capture themselves and what they are looking at. But we see endless footage of Scott's face and his goggly-eyed expressions. What's worse is we quickly realise the real issue - early on Penny reveals that Scott has some psychological issue (never explained) but a little later Scott admits he has not stayed on his medication.

The last forty minutes is a mess of ramblings from an obviously ill person. Unfortunately this makes it not the slightest bit frightening.

There was the base for a great story here - the remote cabin, the fascinating scarecrow art and the shadowy figure which you never really see. But the idea was mismanaged, lost its way and limped to an unsatisfying conclusion.

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.

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.
