Four years after her death, the trailer for Brittany Murphy’s final movie has been released.
The clip, for the indie thriller Something Wicked, features young couple Christine and James (John Robinson and One Tree Hills’ Shantel VanSanten) taunted by a stalker after surviving a fatal car accident. Murphy plays a psychiatrist who becomes clearly rattled in a clip near the end of the trailer, with mascara running down her face and warning, “There’s evil in this house. I saw it with my own eyes.”
The movie was filmed in 2009, the year Murphy died of pneumonia and drug intoxication, and according to producer/screenwriter Joe Colleran, contains some of her best work.
“There’s an important scene where her character is unraveling and she spent a long time getting ready and focused and went for it,” Colleran told USA Today in 2011. “Personally, I think it’s one of the best scenes of her career.”
Something Wicked will premiere in Eugene, Ore. – where it was filmed – on April 4 and will open in Portland and Seattle, WA. and other west coast U.S. cities in the coming weeks.
According to the movie’s official Facebook page, a wider release will depend on fan reaction and word of mouth.
The film also stars Pretty Little Liars’ Julian Morris.
