Brittany Murphy’s final film “Something Wicked” finally has a release date four years after her death.

The “Clueless” star passed away in 2009 and her final project will debut on April 4 at the Regal Theater in Eugene, Oregon, the city where the movie was filmed.

“Something Wicked” is described as a “hauntingly seductive thriller about obsession and young love gone wrong,” and Murphy appeared opposite “One Tree Hill’s” Shantel VanSanten and Lords of Dogtown actor John Robinson.

The movie is slated to open in more theaters across the U.S. shortly after the premiere.

In 2011, “Something Wicked” producer and screenwriter Joe Colleran praised Murphy’s final role, telling USA Today, “Brittany pulled off one of the spookiest scenes in the movie. There’s an important scene where her character is unravelling 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.”

Murphy died at the age of 32 from pneumonia, anaemia and excessive use of prescription medications.
