This seems like its something you guys would enjoy... Please let me know (nicely if possible) if its not alright to post press releases here

The critically acclaimed, controversial micro-budget movie "Ed Gein, The Musical" is having an exclusive Twin Cities premiere at the Mounds Theatre in St. Paul . This Twin Cities engagement is the official kickoff for their Midwest Tour. "Ed Gein, The Musical" is a 96-minute musical/comedy/horror movie filmed in Wisconsin based on the notorious killer and grave robber from Plainfield, WI. Gein was arrested in 1957 and the horror of his crimes and the macabre uses of the dead prompted national and international coverage and outrage. He has been the subject of numerous books and films including, "Psycho, "Texas Chainsaw Massacre, "Silence of The Lambs", "Deranged" etc. The producers at DaviesRussell Studios of Appleton, WI felt that their variation of this often told tale would be singularly unique and very watchable. Steve Russell who directed and co-produced felt that, "our story does not glorify Ed or his actions or demean his victims...but we use the music and dark comedy as a vehicle to tell the story with truth and a fair amount of accuracy." Dan Davies who wrote the film and stars as Ed feels he has an inside track on the story, "I grew up about 10 miles from Plainfield, WI.  My grandpa and the arresting sheriff were, at one time, best friends. He was actually very close to all of the Waushara County deputies. My grandma knew and bought school supplies from Bernice Worden, the lady he murdered just before his arrest. I'm not some outsider from LA or New York doing an exploitative film on this horrible man." Davies added "the movie has been getting some really great laughs and people really enjoy the original and parodied music but our film is really a psychological treatise on how this man became a monster"  Steve Russell added, "we know the subject matter is very controversial as evidenced by all of our national TV, radio and print coverage but people really have to see the movie first and then decide for themselves." After this tour the film will be available nationally via DVD distribution.  At every show the director and star will be there and they are giving away free autographed 11 x 13 movie posters as well. "EGTM" will have a Minneapolis/St. Paul opening/premiere at the historic Mounds Theatre  (April 1-3 & April 9-10). A good portion of the proceeds will be going to the non-profit Portage for Youth and The Historic Mounds Theatre of St. Paul.  
"Ed Gein, The Musical, The $9,000 Movie That Roared"
"Midwest micro-budget movie, "Ed Gein, The Musical" garners national and international coverage with over 1000 articles written about it, including coverage in USA Today, The Financial Times, New York Daily News, New York Post, Chicago Tribune, Chicago Sun-Times, Houston Chronicle, Minneapolis Star-Tribune, Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, St.Paul Pioneer Press, etc. Also national TV coverage via the Fox News Channel. National radio coverage on NPR, WGN, & Sirius/XM. It was also written about and mentioned by Roger Ebert on his twitter (ebertchicago @ twitter) and featured in Bizarre Magazine."

"Ed Gein: The Musical is Sweeney Todd in a red plaid shirt, a macabre medley of Midwestern murder, mayhem and mirth. Its also creative and boldly confident in its tastelessness."

                                                                            Minneapolis Star Tribune
"No matter how you view it, with pathos or black comedy...this movie sticks with you."
                                                                  Joshua Grover-David Patterson

Posting press releases here is perfect.  I enabled the website link in your post, since guests and new visitors cannot post them.
