Synopsis by Hal Erickson

Black Noon is a witchcraft-on-the-prairie endeavor starring Roy Thinnes as a minister and Lyn Loring (Mrs. Roy Thinnes) as his wife. Newly arrived in a small western town, Thinnes finds his spirtual leadership challenged by a mysterious force that is causing misfortune to befall the settlers. Once he gets past the closed-mouthed residents, Thinnes learns that the town's controlling force is a cult of devil worshippers who practice voodoo. The allegorical elements of Black Noon are on the spell-it-out level of those religious pamphlets one frequently finds stuffed under one's windshield wiper. The film was shot in the desert regions just north of Los Angeles.
