    Brittany Murphy Gets Intense in Something Wicked—Watch the Late Actress in Her Final Role

    Fans may have thought they'd never get the chance to see Brittany Murphy on the big screen again, but that's not the case.

    The late actress, who died from pneumonia, anemia and multiple drug intoxication in December 2009, had one last film on the back burner at the time of her death, and now, four years later, we can watch the star do what she does best.

    In the Something Wicked trailer released today, Murphy brings on an intense and chilling performance that will probably give viewers an urge to look away (but you don't want to cover your eyes because its Brittany Murphy!).

    Something Wicked will hit theaters Apr. 4 in Eugene, Ore., at the Regal Valley River Center 15. The location was chosen to honor where the psychological thriller was filmed in 2009. The movie will roll out to Regal Cinemas in Portland and Seattle the following weeks, with more theaters to come.

    Per the movie's official Facebook account, "The better we do in theaters, the more cities will be added so we need your help getting the word out. Full press release to be posted shortly. Stay Wicked!"

    The indie is described as a "hauntingly seductive thriller about obsession and young love gone wrong." Something Wicked also stars One Tree Hill's Shantel VanSanten and Pretty Little Liars' Julian Morris.

    "Brittany pulled off one of the spookiest scenes in the movie," Something Wicked producer and screenwriter Joe Colleran told USA Today in 2011. "There's an important scene where her character is unraveling and she spent a long time getting ready and focused and went for it. Personally, I think it's one of the best scenes of her career."
