Welcome to 1980s Horror Month at FMWL!

That's right....IT'S HERE.
June is my favorite month, and I wanted to do something special for it here at From Midnight, With Love.  As I looked back at FMWL over the couple of years, I realized that a) I've covered a lot of '80s films, because I do love the '80s; and b) I still haven't talked about some '80s horrors that I meant to cover, whether they be personal favorites or films that have eluded my eyes thus far.  So, for the next 30 days....we're gonna be all about the '80s.  Things won't vary too far from our normal fare, but there will be a couple of tricks up my sleeve.
For starters, I'll be spending a large part of the month counting down my personal 31 Favorite 1980s Horrors.  I'm very excited to share my favorites - even if I haven't quite finished the list yet - and hope you'll enjoy coming along for a ride through my own view of the decade's bests.  If nothing else, I hope some of the selections will surprise you.
Speaking of surprises, I've also got a few fantastic guest hosts lined up to host FMWL at times this month.  I will be taking a brief vacation in the middle of the month, but I assure you that I'm going to leave the site in some very good hands.  The writers I've talked to so far - no, unfortunately, Elvira isn't one of them - have some great insight to share with you all, and I'm hoping they can enlighten me a bit too.
If any of you Midnight Warriors out there are willing to contribute to the cause - and wouldn't mind your perspective on '80s horror being shared with FMWL's readers - get in touch with me and let me know.  I want this month to be more than just me rambling about these movies, I want to hear from YOU.  You could send me a review, send me a list, send me an opinion piece - anything that pays tribute to horror's most decadent decade.  Just hit up the email, frommidnightwithlove (at) gmail (dot) com, and let me know.
Now is the time, Midnight Warriors.  Let's show our love for that glorious time gone by, and lets have an awesome 1980s Horror Month here at FMWL!  In the meantime.....enjoy a musical selection from Caroline Munro and the 1985 slasher Don't Open Till Christmas!

June just got more awesome, The Mike. I very much look forward to this event. If a person wants to contribute an item, do you need to know in advance, or should we just send it to you when we have it prepared?

All I can say is I better see a review of Evil Dead 1 & 2 in there! haha

I will be sending some stuff your way. Just to help you out. Take care Sir.

John - Anytime is good, mostly. I will be out of town for a week in the middle of the month, so some of the people I've already talked to are going to have scheduled guest posts that week. If you've got something up your sleeve and can email me by the 10th, I can queue it up for that week.

If not, I'll be posting more after I return at the end of the month - so whatever works for you is fine. Just hit up the email when you have something. And, as always, thanks for reading!

Russ - Thanks man! I got your email, digging your idea.

As for Evil Dead - I have a feeling the films might be making an appearance (even though 2 was already an MMOTW).
