Brittany Murphy's last movie "Something Wicked" is premiering in theaters on Friday in Oregon, with an expanded release scheduled for later in the month.

The soon-to-be released psychological thriller, directed by Darin Scott, was filmed six months before Murphy died in December 2009. Murphy, according to a coroner's report, died of pneumonia, anemia and cardiac arrest. She was just 32.

Written by Joe Colleran, the 95-minute thriller revolves around a young couple who is embarking on their wedding plans until a tragic car accident from their past brings gruesome secrets to the surface and collides "with sinister forces of the present to ensure these newlyweds do not live 'happily-ever-after,'" IMDB.com reported.

In addition to Murphy, the film also stars 28-year-old Shantel Van Santen, of "One Tree Hill," and "The Final Destination" fame, as well as John Robinson, James Patrick Stuart, and Betty Moyer among others.

In the film, Murphy plays the role of a psychiatrist who appears to be intertwined in the deteriorating relationship between Van Santen and Robinson's characters, according to the Hollywood Reporter.

In the clip below, a hysterical, teary-eyed Murphy is seen screaming "There is evil in this house I saw it with my own eyes!"

According to the film's screenwriter Colleran, Murphy, "pulled off one of the spookiest scenes in the movie."

"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 said, the Daily Mail reported. "Personally, I think it's one of the best scenes of her career."

Despite the coroner's initial report, Murphy's death is still somewhat of a mystery, considering a new report released in November 2013 suggests it might not have been accidental as originally thought.

Murphy’s father, Angelo Bertolotti, had the tests independently done after learning that certain toxicology tests weren’t performed when his daughter died at age 32 in 2009.

Bertolotti has insisted his daughter wasn’t a drug addict or anorexic, as media reports have suggested since her death. Adding to speculation about her death was the fact that her husband, Simon Monjack, 40, died just five months after Murphy of similar problems.

The lab report from the Carlson Company that Bertolotti released reported that 10 heavy metals were detected at "levels higher than the WHO (World Health Organization) high levels," according to MStars News.
