Directed by Karl Mueller
Hungry for success, Scott and Penny move from New York to the desert to make a nature documentary. But their focus changes when they discover their creepy hermit neighbor is the reclusive artist Mr. Jones. Smelling a scoop, the duo begin secretly filming their excursions into his doll-filled underground lair. As the couple try to finish their film, their minds start playing scary tricks on them– or is it Mr. Jones? Part of the recent wave of Lynch-inspired indie horror (I CAN SEE YOU, THE RAMBLER), MR. JONES is a surreal shot of adrenaline delivered right to the heart.
A couple makes a documentary about their strange, maybe dangerous neighbor.
Cast: Jon Foster, Sarah Jones, Mark Steger
Rare occasion where I wish a movie was a little more linear, still a good watch though.
Slow start, but really felt like it could be going somewhere. Unfortunately, the plot gets lost in the woods and meanders for the remainder of the film, with the movie largely becoming characters asking what is happening and handheld shakey-cam so bad that the audience also can't see what's going on. It does look pretty, though.
i think this is a beautiful concept full of depth and i loved that it was found footage style but with great quality shots
I loved the premise and apparently, I'm one of the few who found the plot intriguing...but then suddenly, the director panics and vomits celluloid all over the audience. Still, it was interesting enough for me to keep an eye out for Karl Mueller. Maybe he'll grow into his talent.
