Throg on DVD

The 2004 "Sword & Sorcery Tour de Farce" Throg was released on DVD a few months ago. This low, low budget film tells the story of a warrior god who time-travels through history, and through one Androscoggin County town.
Much of the movie was filmed in Mechanic Falls. Those with a keen eye for the town will notice Urshag the Destroyer, in his ongoing search to find and eliminate Throg, enters the Mechanic Falls public library with his battle hammer in hand.

There are scenes, including the climactic battle, filmed at the Mechanic Falls public works department. [Link]
Not coincidentally, the movie stars former Mechanic Falls Town Manager Dana Lee.
