Nail-biting terror becomes nail-filing boredom.
1 September 2015 | by waterman_harrySee all my reviews

I was inspired to watch Mr Jones simply because of my love and fascination for the found-footage genre that has become so popular in the past decade, however this is no REC or Blair Witch Project.

Mr Jones is a horror flick that begins with prophesying beauty and an artsy introduction that would probably throw off a mainstream audience from the get go, which is kindly of the director to do really, because Mr Jones doesn't pretend to be normal and I respect that. Unfortunately, it does seem to take itself too seriously to be considered serious at all, in its attempts at being a memorably scary film.

It has its moments for sure, there were times watching Mr Jones that I was genuinely shook and in fear, which makes it even sadder when it declines to a scramble from idea to idea. Mr Jones just cant find its footing. Is it a found- footage story of survival? Is it a mind- bending Lynchian dreamscape? Is it a slasher film? Who the hell knows, but what we do know is that the director, cast and everyone else involved really don't seem to know either, this is obvious.

The acting is good and the idea behind the story could've been brilliant as it is original and creepy, but its smothered under lashings of a scrambled script and frantic meandering of the plot. At the end, Mr Jones is unfortunately nothing but a pile of twigs and dirt.

Not recommended.
