Brittany Murphy's Final Movie, Something Wicked, Is Being Released! Watch The Creepy New Trailer

Apr 1, 2014 09:15 AM

If Brittany Murphy's sudden and shocking death wasn't disturbing enough, now the late actress' final movie, Something Wicked, is coming out -- and it looks like it's all sorts of creepy.

We gotta say both Murphy's performance and the film -- look positively chilling!

Murphy, who died in December 2009 from pneumonia, anemia and multiple drug intoxication, filmed the movie just before her death.

Something Wicked is billed as a, "hauntingly seductive thriller about obsession and young love gone wrong." In the movie, Murphy plays the role of Susan, a very addled and shaken woman.

"Brittany pulled off one of the spookiest scenes in the movie," the film's producer and screenwriter Joe Colleran told USA Today back 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."

The Clueless actress' final film is slated to open April 4 in Eugene, Ore., at the Regal Valley River Center 15. The location was selected because it is where the psychological thriller was filmed in 2009. The movie will then hit Regal Cinemas in Portland, then Seattle the following weeks. The film will then open in more theaters based on audience attendance.

Brittany Murphy's Father And Mother-In-Law Call For Death To Be Reopened, Claims Star And Husband Were Poisoned

Nov 20, 2013 10:40 AM


This story just keeps getting weirder!

Brittany Murphy's mysterious 2009 death at the age of 32 shocked Hollywood -- and the story only further floored us when her husband Simon Monjack died in the same house as the Clueless star, only six months later. The coroner later ruled that Murphy had died from pneumonia and anemia. However, the 2010 findings are looking doubtful after Murphy’s father, Angelo Bertolotti, commissioned an independent toxicology analysis that found the actress’ body contained abnormally high levels of the toxic metal Barium, which is common in rat poison, as well as arsenic, lithium and tin.

Bertolotti released the results found by Colorado-based laboratory the Carlson Company on Monday. The testing was done on a hair sample from the back of Murphy’s head and resulted in the detection of “ten heavy metals at levels above the World Health Organization high levels recommendation.”

The summary also said if one was to “eliminate the possibility of a simultaneous accidental heavy metals exposure to the sample donor, then the only logical explanation would be an exposure to these metals (toxins) administered by a third party with criminal intent.”

Monjack's mother, who is calling for both cases to be reopened, also seems to suspect some foul play. "I have a feeling that something is terribly wrong," Linda Monjack told MailOnline.

"I believe that lots of things were covered up that should not have been covered up and I do know that my son died unnecessarily in circumstances that are very, very suspect," she added.

The Los Angeles Coroner's office said that pending a review of the toxicology report, they could exhume Murphy's body for further examination.

We hope authorities finally get to the bottom of this sad mystery.

Brittany Murphy's Father Suing The LA County Coroner's Office

Jan 12, 2012 12:30 PM

brittany-murphy-wrongful-de.jpgBrittany Murphy's father, Angelo Bertolotti, is suing the Los Angeles County Coroner's Office because he claims her autopsy was "never fully investigated.”

Bertolotti, who is also suing the Los Angeles Police Department, has requested samples of his daughter’s hair for his own testing. “I’m not going to rest until my daughter’s untimely demise is properly investigated, which hasn’t happened so far. Her case deserves more than a superficial glance,” Bertolotti said in a press release.

In 2009 the coroner’s office ruled that the 32-year-old actress died of pneumonia, anemia and prescription drug intoxication, but Bertolotti believes toxic mold in her Hollywood Hills home could have caused her death, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Coroner: Brittany Murphy's Husband Simon Monjack Died "Just Like Brittany"

Jul 21, 2010 02:35 PM


Brittany Murphy's husband Simon Monjack, who died just five months after his movie-star wife, passed away from pneumonia and severe anemia, says an LA County coroner spokesperson.

Ironically, Simon passed away in the same house as his deceased wife, and like Brittany, was found by Murphy's mother Sharon. Some prescription drugs were also found in his system, but not enough to be lethal, according to CNN.

Brittany Murphy's cause of death was due to a combination of pneumonia, an iron deficiency and multiple drug intoxication.

Simon Monjack Will Be Buried Next To Wife Brittany Murphy

May 27, 2010 08:30 AM

brittlogo.jpgSimon Monjack will be laid to rest today at Forest Lawn Memorial Park in the Hollywood Hills next to his wife, Brittany Murphy. Monjack, a screenwriter, was found dead in his home this past Sunday ... the very same house where his wife died six months ago. He also shared the home with Brittany's mom, Sharon.

On Tuesday, an autopsy was performed on Monjack, but the coroner's office says that it will be weeks before the actual cause of death is determined.

According to Monjack's rep, he suffered from a heart condition. The private service at Forest Lawn will take place at 3pm.

Brittany Murphy's Husband Due For Heart Surgery Before Death

May 24, 2010 01:52 PM


Brittany Murphy's husband was apparently due for a heart bypass before his sudden death last night, but kept putting the surgery off.

"I was told he needed a bypass," Roger Neal, a spokesperson for Simon, Sharon and the Brittany Murphy Foundation said. "I said to him, 'Simon, you have so much going on, let's keep you healthy.' I said, 'You want to be healthy. Don't you?' He said yes, but he said, 'The bypass can wait.'"

Simon was found unconscious by Murpy's mother Sharon in the Hollywood Hills home he shared with Brittany last night around 9pm after he suffered an apparent cardiac arrest and called the paramedics, who pronounced him dead after being unable to resuscitate him. Ironically, it was also Sharon who discovered her daughter unconscious in the same home just five months ago.

L.A. Assistant Chief Coroner Ed Winter said "We're not sure if it is natural causes or a possible accident, maybe because of the prescription medication found there."

Official cause of death is still yet to be determined.

BREAKING NEWS - Brittany Murphy's Husband Found Dead

May 24, 2010 05:55 AM

simonmonjackdead.jpgBrittany Murphy's widow, Simon Monjack, was found dead last night in the Hollywood Hills home he shared with his late wife and her mother.

In fact it was Sharon Murphy who found her daughter dead in the couple's shower, in the same home, just five months ago and it was Sharon who discovered Simon's body last night around 9:30 PM in the master bedroom.

Murphy called 911 and Monjack was pronounced dead after paramedics performed CPR but were unable to resuscitate him. Reports say cardiac arrest was the cause of death.

Police tell X17 there is no evidence of foul play and there will not be an investigation into Monjack's death. His body is at the coroner's office for an autopsy.

Brittany Murphy's Husband Simon Monjack Hits Out At Rumors He's Sleeping With His Dead Wife's Mom

Mar 22, 2010 10:15 AM

Simon Monjack has fervently denied rumors that after the death of his young wife, Brittany Murphy, he not only shares a home with her mom Sharon, but he's sharing a bed as well!

Monjack recently told Access Hollywood, "We don't have sex, number one. Number two, she is a woman that has toxic neuropathy, which means she can barely walk." And thirdly, "I live downstairs, she lives upstairs."

Ok, we really want to believe that Monjack is telling the truth, because the alternative would be too creepy, but why would a woman with "toxic neuropathy" who can "barely walk" live on the top floor of a house? Wouldn't she want to be on the first floor so she doesn't have to deal with steps? Also, his denial is that they "don't have sex." Not that they're not involved. Was that just the way he phrased it or is he covering up for something?
