New found-footage mockumentary, [Mr. Jones](movie:931828), has just released two new clips online. Despite the fairly benign documentary format, both do a rather chilling job of setting up the premise to this new psychological thriller from Karl Mueller. Check out the clips and synopsis below:
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. But they’ll 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. When Scott and Penny’s curiosity leads them too close for Mr. Jones’ comfort, he plunges the young couple into a nightmare world of mayhem, madness and mind-bending terror.
The film certainly seems to owe a lot to The Blair Witch Project, especially concerning its twisted wood sculptures and rather bizarre habit of shoving the camera up characters' noses as opposed to actually filming the thing they're trying to record.
Mr Jones will be receiving a limited Los Angeles theatrical release beginning May 2nd, while it will be available to preorder for the rest of us.
What do you think? An interesting, original concept, or the same old found footage stuff we've seen before? Let us know below.
