One of several ABC "Movies of the Week" shown on Monday nights
4 December 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I too watched "Black Noon" as a ten-year-old in the States on ABC's "Movie of the Week". In particular, Hank Worden, as old Joseph, really scared the hell out of me as a kid.

It's possible that if I were to view it now as an adult (having watched many creepy movies since then, like "Carnival of Souls", "Rosemary's Baby", and "The Shining", it may not stand up to the creepy memories I have of this movie. But I'd love to get the chance to see for myself!

ABC produced a couple of high quality films for their "Movie of the Week" series. Some better than others. "Crowhaven Farm" was actually the scariest of them all. Hope Lange as an unwitting victim amongst a secret coven of witches was so chilling.

Seared in my memory, though probably not as scary as the above two mentioned "Movies of the Week" would be "The House on Greenapple Road" (with a young Eve Plumb as the young daughter in a brutally bloody scene in the kitchen) and "The House That Wouldn't Die" with Barbara Stanwyck. Also, I vaguely remember another "Movie of the Week" with Lesley Ann Warren, Peter Haskill, and Ryan Hope. Pretty good, though not truly as scary as "Black Noon" or "Crowhaven Farm".

One other last "Movie of the Week" I remember was "Maybe I'll Come Home in the Spring" with Sally Field. Kind of hooky, not at all scary, but I do remember enjoying it as a young girl.
