What does Marketing Macabre recommend for a press release?

We recommend collecting your assets and mapping out a plan of attack.   Don’t give media outlets everything all at once.  Instead, strategically space out individual press releases to feature various film assets like, teaser trailers, theatrical trailers, official movie posters, lobby cards, and exclusive clips & stills.

It all starts with Horrornews.net but our press releases go out to over 200+ horror websites / bloggers / movie reviewers / and podcasters.
