Camelot’s DarKnight Pictures Premiere Attracts Worldwide Interest

and Multiple Sales for Freak Show Entertainment’s Grindhouse Film

Los Angeles – (May 26, 2010) Camelot Entertainment Group, Inc. (OTCBB: CMGR) (”Camelot”) announced today that DarKnight Picture’s (“DKP”) release of Freak Show Entertainment’s Nude Nuns with Big Guns won over international audiences at the Marche du Film in Cannes, France, which took place from May 12-21, 2010.  With interest soaring, Vice President of Sales Jeffrey Giles closed deals to release the film in Australia, Germany, Norway, Denmark, Sweden, Finland, and Iceland.  Deals are still being negotiated for United States, France, UK, Japan, Eastern Europe, and CIS.

“The May 15 premiere in Cannes was packed.  We had to turn away twice as many people as we could allow into the screening, and the response was great,” commented Jessica Kelly, Vice President of Marketing and PR. “Throughout the market, fans, distributors, film festival programmers, and multiple broadcast and web outlets flocked to the Camelot Booth to catch a glimpse of the posters and trailer.  The worldwide appetite for genre based films like Nude Nuns with Big Guns continues to grow.”

Nude Nuns with Big Guns follows the revenge of Sister Sarah after she is raped, drugged, and abused by a sinister clergy sect and a rogue motorcycle gang. She unleashes her own unique brand of forgiveness as she shows them that hell hath no fury like a Nude Nun with a Big Gun!

“The audience continues to grow for this type of fun, escapist entertainment,” added Camelot VP of Sales Jeffrey Giles. “Nude Nuns with Big Guns harkens back to an era when there was a segment of films that all you had to do was sit back, grab some candy and popcorn, and go along for the ride. They are fun, farcical and entertaining. The buyers and the consumers worldwide find them to be guilty pleasures well worth engaging.”

‘Nude Nuns’ is a Freak Show Entertainment Production, directed by Joseph Guzman, written by Joseph Guzman and Robert James Hayes II, and produced by Maysam Mortazavi, Joseph Guzman, and Robert James Hayes II.  Executive Producers are Maysam Mortazavi, Tom Takei, Ramy Al Hamdani, along with Camelot’s Robert P.
