- "Um, I'm chasing myself. I'm trying to hurt myself."
Mr. Jones is a 2013 horror film starring Jon Foster and Sarah Jones.
Scott is a filmmaker in crisis. He's uninspired, and his relationship with his wife, Penny, is not at its best. The couple move to a house in the desert, where they discover that their neighbor is Mr. Jones, a world-renowned sculptor and mysterious recluse whose work is... fairly disturbing. Scott's fascination with the artist will take him into his universe, a world as twisted as his sinister art.
