Judging from the stills I just received in my inbox, here’s a film that looks like it has some potential. Try as I might, I wasn’t able to find a “trailer” for Mr. Jones, but I was able to find a short clip of terror. Sure, it looks like the filmmakers are playing on classicconventions, but that’s sometimes what we want and need. They are, after all, classic horror conventions for a reason. Additional details below.
“Who is Mr. Jones?” To some, he is an enigmatic artist with a unique vision of humanity and our place in the spiritual universe. To others, his very name conjures unimaginable primal fears. But for two young people, he will become their worst nightmare.
From Preferred Film & TV’s Ross M. Dinerstein, the producer of the Sundance Film Festival smash hit The Pact and The Divide, comes Mr. Jones, bowing May 6th on Blu-ray, DVD, and on demand from Anchor Bay Films.
Having premiered at the prestigious Tribeca Film Festival in 2013, Mr. Jones will also have an exclusive Los Angeles limited theatrical engagement beginning May 2nd.
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.
Diane Neal (Law & Order: SVU), Mark Steger (I Am Legend), and David Clennon (John Carpenter‘s The Thing) co-star in this startling tale from debut Karl Mueller (screenwriter of Xavier Gens’ The Divide).
