At this year's Tribeca Film Festival, Anchor Bay picked up the rights to "Mr. Jones," writer/director Karl Mueller's indie horror film about a young couple (Jon Foster and Sarah Jones) terrorized in (where else but) a remote cabin by a twisted forest-dwelling hermit. No word yet on the North American distribution date of "Mr. Jones," but the film will have its world premiere on April 19th at Tribeca.

The plot sure sounds trite, but in a recent interview with Indiewire, Mueller named Danny Boyle and David Lynch as the primary influences for this purportedly surreal flick. Here's hoping he delivers.

In 2011, Anchor Bay Films released Mueller's feature film writing debut "The Divide," an apocalyptic thriller directed by Xavier Gens.
