DKP Acquires ‘Snipped’ starring ‘Weekend at Bernie’s’ Duo McCarthy and Silverman and the sequel to ‘Dirty Movie’

Cannes, France – (May 21, 2012) Camelot Entertainment Group, Inc. (OTCBB: CMGR) (”Camelot”), Camelot Distribution Group (“CDG”), and DarKnight Pictures (“DKP”) announced today that they have acquired the rights to two National Lampoon comedies – SNIPPED and ANOTHER DIRTY MOVIE.

SNIPPED, starring Andrew McCarthy (Weekend at Bernie’s, Pretty in Pink, St. Elmo’s Fire) and Jonathan Silverman (Weekend at Bernie’s, Caddyshack II), is the story of an ex-jock, sportscaster, who agrees to donate an organ to an ill relative only to have the surgery go disastrously wrong.

ANOTHER DIRTY MOVIE, a sequel to DIRTY MOVIE released in 2011, follows two young students who want to make a dirty movie, not for the fortune or fame, but rather to get girls.

“As an independent producer, I enjoyed a great relationship with Camelot. Now as President of National Lampoon,” comments Alan Donnes, “I hope to continue and expand that relationship. These are precisely the type of people and the type of companies we want to partner with as we work to return National Lampoon to its rightful place in the entertainment industry.”

Both of these titles are in CDG’s Cannes line-up, along with YOU CAN’T KILL STEPHEN KING, PRIVACY, WEBDULTERY, and THE DISH AND THE SPOON. CDG is located at Lerins R5 from May 16-23, 2012.

You Can't Kill Stephen King

A serial killer offing his victims in ways inspired by the work of America’s finest horror writer? This is the movie The Raven should have been. That’s assuming The Raven had a sense of humor, creepy twins, and hot girl-on-girl action! For a sneak peek at all this goodness watch the trailer for You Can’t Kill Stephen King after the jump.

Camelot Entertainment, the folks behind Never Sleep Again and Nude Nuns with Big Guns, describes You Can’t Kill Stephen King thusly:A group of friends visit a lake where horror author Stephen King lives, and start getting killed off one at a time.”  The film is directed by Ronnie Khalil, Monroe Mann, and Jorge Valdes-Iga; and stars Monroe Mann, Ronnie Khalil, Crystal Arnette, Kayle Blogna, and Katie Costello.

CDG Acquires Horror Comedy for Market

Universal City, CA – (May 9, 2012) Camelot Entertainment Group, Inc. (OTCBB: CMGR) (”Camelot”) announced today that Camelot Distribution Group (“CDG”) has acquired worldwide all-media rights for the horror comedy YOU CAN’T KILL STEPHEN KING, which will screen at the Marche Du Film in Cannes, France on May 17.  Produced by Loco Dawn Films and Clownfish Productions, the film follows a group of friends in search of Stephen King.

“When I saw this trailer in November, I couldn’t wait to see the feature,” said Co-President of Distribution Jess Kelly.  “It’s well done with such a great hook.  Camelot is excited to be selling the film at Cannes.  It’s this year’s ‘Tucker and Dale’.”

The film was written by Monroe Mann, Ronnie Khalil, and Bob Madia and was directed by Mann, Khalil, and Jorge Valdes-Iga. The cast includes emerging talent from Crystal Arnette, Kayle Blogna, Kate Costello, and Justin Brown.

“14 years ago, I acted my way into the Cannes Film Festival as a 20-year-old wannabe; I’m pretty excited to be returning to Cannes, this time as a legitimate player, thanks to our cast, crew, and of course, Camelot.  Pretty exciting!” stated Mann.

‘KING’ has garnered interest from festivals and fans from around the world, just recently winning the Peoples Choice Award at the Lewiston Auburn Film Festival.

“It’s great to see we’ve gotten so much attention overseas,” says Khalil.  “The great thing about this film is you don’t have to be a die-hard King fan to really enjoy it.”

‘KING’ is about a group of friends who make a clueless and ill-fated decision to visit the lake where horror author Stephen King lives. As dead bodies begin to mount, one thing becomes clear: all the killings are straight out of Stephen King novels.
