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.
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.
The film was shot in Glasgow in 1997. 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. It is suggested Sheen agreed to this film in an attempt to try more serious roles.
