Brittany Murphy’s death shocked the world. Although it has been four years since her death, part of her will live on in her films, including the last one she made. Something Wicked will be released in theaters on April 4 and is described as a psychological thriller.
In the film, two young lovers head off on a honeymoon even though their parents do not think that they should. After a tragedy takes place, the couple find out a horrible secret about their pasts and find themselves struggling with their recent revelation. The couple goes to Murphy’s character, a psychiatrist, for help and she is determined to help them save their new marriage.
The film was shot in Eugene, Oregon, which is also where it will first be released. Eventually, the film will be released in other cities across the country. Murphy’s last movie role is said to be one of her best and producer Joe Colleran calls it her most chilling.
“I would describe Brittany’s performance as the most chilling performance of her career,” said Colleran.
Murphy died in 2009 and her death was considered suspicious at first. An autopsy revealed that the cause of death was pneumonia, anemia and a mixture of drugs. Even more suspicious, Murphy’s husband, Simon Monjack died just five months later from the same causes.
Murphy’s father did not believe that she died from anemia and pneumonia and speculated that she had been poisoned. He even filed a claim that blamed the investigators of failing to do their jobs properly. The claim was later dismissed but many of Murphy’s family members, fans and friends still believe that her death was not natural.
