What’s on TV: ‘Under the Autumn Moon’ and ‘Haunting of Hill House’


Love and leaves are in the air in “Under the Autumn Moon,” and “Haunting of Hill House” brings horror to Netflix.

LOVE AND HATE CRIME: A MURDER IN MISSISSIPPI 10 p.m. on Investigation Discovery. The second installment of this BBC documentary series delves into the 2011 murder of James Craig Anderson, who was robbed, beaten and run over in Jackson, Miss., by a group of white teenagers. Through interviews with officials, with Anderson’s family, and with the family of a teenager who was a passenger in the vehicle used in the attack, the documentary examines modern-day hate and intolerance.

UNDER THE AUTUMN MOON 9 p.m. on Hallmark. Hallmark once again seems to delivers what it does best — blending the feeling and sentiments of a holiday or season with the trials and tribulations of love. And this film does not seem to stray from the tried and true concoction: Alex (Lindy Booth) is up for a promotion at the outdoor adventure company she works for and finds herself visiting a dude ranch that might be a possible acquisition. While there, she falls in love with ranch’s owner (Wes Brown) as she rediscovers herself and her connection to the outdoors.

HAUNTING OF HILL HOUSE on Netflix. This adaptation of Shirley Jackson’s novel flickers back and forth between the past and present. The five Crain siblings were haunted one summer when they were youths. Now, years later, they’re left to confront the memories and scars the incident inflicted and must rehash the events that drove them away from their childhood home.

APOSTLE (2018) on Netflix. When his sister is kidnapped and held for ransom, Thomas Richardson (Dan Stevens) embarks on a dangerous journey to infiltrate a religious cult on an isolated island to rescue her. Thomas soon bears witness to the torture and death inflicted at the hands of the cult and the leaders of this self-proclaimed paradise as he becomes intertwined within the secrets of the community.

V FOR VENDETTA (2005) on Amazon, Google Play, Netflix and Vudu. The Guy Fawkes mask, the symbol of the hacking collective Anonymous and a staple in international protests, first rose to fame in this film based on Alan Moore’s graphic novel. Set in futuristic Britain, Evey Hammond (Natalie Portman) finds herself entangled with a man who’s known as V (Hugo Weaving) after he rescues her from a dangerous situation. V, who hides his identity behind the Fawkes mask, intends to take down the fascist government currently in power by means like death and destruction. Evey seems to be left with no other choice but to help V on his quest. In her review for The New York Times, Manohla Dargis wrote, “this film sags when it should zip, weighted down with self-importance and some dubious thinking.” But you can decide that for yourself.
