In case you have not heard about it yet: Rigid East / Lupus Pictures, the legendary producer of spanking and corporal punishment films, will be closing down next week.
The Czech studio originally started out sixteen years ago under the name Rigid East. In 2000, they became Lupus Pictures and began making ever more polished-looking videos, with a professional crew, professional camera equipment, lavish props and costumes and intricate storylines. It is no exaggeration to say that Lupus changed the genre forever. They were the first to produce anything approaching “real movies”, and they made everyone else look like rank amateurs at the time. Even today, among new, ambitious rivals, the Czechs’ body of work arguably remains unsurpassed. With Lupus Pictures, “spanking videos” became “spanking films”.
So now, Rigid East / Lupus are calling it quits, citing a desire to try out new directions: “We already made the best spanking movies the spankos ever saw. So now it’s time to explore new worlds…”
I’m sure there’s more to this story. But I’ll be sorry to see them go; their productions were unique and memorable.
