Postmortem (released as Obit in the United Kingdom) is a 1998 film directed by Albert Pyun, starring Charlie Sheen, Ivana Miličević and Michael Halsey. It was filmed in Glasgow, Scotland.

Plot[edit]

American criminal profiler and author James McGregor (Sheen), who is trying to escape his past by moving to Scotland where he receives a fax of a stranger's obituary. The next day he is arrested and charged with the stranger's murder, forcing him to collaborate with the local authorities if he wants to clear himself and stop a serial killer.

Production[edit]

The film was shot in Glasgow in 1997.[1] At one point during production, Sheen demanded to visit Easterhouse, one of Glasgow's toughest areas at the time, to obtain drugs and asked for a gun in order to protect himself.[2] It is suggested Sheen agreed to this film in an attempt to try more serious roles.[1]
