Mr. Jones

Do trees, branches and creepy hermits scare you?  Then follow us as we check out the new out in nature horror outing "Mr. Jones" now on Blu-ray from Anchor Bay Home Entertainment.  We examine and review the artifacts and their scare factor below!


Mr. Jones Blu-ray


   Title: "Mr. Jones"

   Grade: 2

   Cast: Jon Foster, Sarah Jones, Mark Steger

   Director: Karl Mueller

   Rating: PG-13

   Runtime: 84 minutes

   Release Company: Anchor Bay Home Entertainment



The Flick: This is another example of a decent creepy premise that just goes unrealized.  A young couple heads to a remote cabin in the woods to work on their relationship and such and end up getting interested in a local neighbor who may be a famed satanic sculpture.  Again the potential is there (the scenes of experts spinning the tale adds a creep factor for sure!) but thanks to crappy handheld shake cam (it makes The Blair Witch Project look like it was shot on a tripod!) and to much found footage unfun via the uninspired couple, the scares and mind-bending dreams within are in short supply.

Best Feature: No features here – for an Anchor Bay release that’s telling.

Best Hidden Gem: Love the interviews with experts including the ever-believable Faran Tahir.

Worth the Moola: "Mr. Jones" is a good guy with an interesting personality – but he needs a dose of Ritalin stat!
