The first trailer for horror movie “Mr. Jones” is available to haunt us till its release. The film should not be mistaken for the bleak 1993 movie of the same name starring Richard Gere. The plot summary kicks off with a couple moving to a cabin in the woods, has anything good ever come from taking shelter in a dodgy cabin? Mr. Jones only comes out at night and likes to display his creepy creations in the woods. Be cautious and tread carefully, he doesn’t like to be disturbed!
The folks over at ShockTillYouDrop has the following plot summary available for our reading pleasure:
“Scott and Penny 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 Indie horror flick premiered at last year’s Tribeca Film Festival. Written and directed by Karl Mueller (writer of The Divide), the film stars Jon Foster, Sarah Jones, Diane Neal, Mark Steger and David Clennon. ‘Mr. Jones’ will make its way to theatres on May 2. The horror will also be available on DVD from Anchor Bay on May 6.
This really looks like a must see for horror geeks, check out the info from the official site:
“Scott is a filmmaker in need of inspiration. After he and girlfriend Penny move into a desolate house, hoping to make a creative breakthrough, their lives spiral downward. Then they discover their neighbor, the elusive Mr. Jones. Famous for his haunting sculptures, Mr. Jones has remained a mystery to the world. Scott and Penny, convinced that they have found the perfect film subject, sneak into his workshop, only to realize that their curiosity may have chilling consequences. Who is Mr. Jones?”
“With his debut feature, writer/director Karl Mueller has taken the found-footage fright film to a new dimension, introducing a completely unique labyrinth of terrors. Mueller is no stranger to the horror genre, having co-written Xavier Gens’s post-apocalyptic The Divide in 2011. Ominous and disturbing, this is a shining example of the new generation of indie horror. Mr. Jones weaves its reality with supernatural elements and a touch of mysticism. Imbued with ingenuity and vision, this film delivers good old-fashioned scares.”
