MR. JONES

THE PLOT THUS FAR

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.

WHAT WE THOUGHT

“Mr. Jones” is so uneven that it becomes hard to watch. I get that people like to have drama mixed with their horror. That being said, I have to feel like the people onscreen might actually be in danger. Just throwing people in the Woods and giving them a scary story isn’t enough for me. Why should it be enough for you?

I’m getting so weird about Horror anymore. I know that it’s an easy genre to abuse and so many studios dump stories because they’re cheap and easily shot. But, you can say the same thing about porn. The only difference is that porn is occasionally funny. This film just happens into implausible situations and it doesn’t go anywhere.

The Blu-Ray comes with no special features. However, it gets one of the best Dolby TrueHD 5.1 audio tracks that I’ve heard all year. How does that happen? The 1080p transfer is smooth enough for a Blair Witch clone. In the end, I’d recommend skipping it to most. The Redbox crowd will make it a rental.
