Brittany Murphy's last film has been finished three years after the actress' death.

The Clueless star had completed her work on Something Wicked before she died in 2009 - of a combination of pneumonia, anaemia and prescription medications - but production was delayed as a result of her death.

However, according to USA Today, Merchant Films has announced that post-production on the psychological thriller was completed this week.

The movie is about "obsession and young love gone wrong" and producer and screenwriter Joe Colleran said the late actress "pulled off one of the spookiest scenes in the movie".

He added: "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."

Brittany was found dead in her Hollywood home on December 20, 2009. She was 32 when she died.

Her British-born husband, screenwriter Simon Monjack, was found dead just five months after she died. Coroners determined that the 40-year-old died from pneumonia.
