POSTMORTEM is one of those psychological thrillers that bends the plot lines and incorporates confusing motivations in order to forward its plot. While it doesn't quite come up to par, it is a tidy little thriller with an interesting performance from Stephen McCole, who plays the necromancer and obvious fan of writer Charlie Sheen's book on serial killers. Sheen himself is a suspect at first as the killer is sending him advance fax notices of the deaths, and a body is found in Sheen's garden. Charlie plays a down and out, alcoholic former cop who left the States to wind up in Scotland, where the movie takes place. Sheen sobers up to help the local law officials track down this criminal. Sheen does an okay job as Jimmy McGregor, although he seems disoriented at times when he shouldn't. The role of McCole's sister in the plot is never fully explained, nor is the father's, but that's part of the psychological ambiguity parlayed in this film. It does have a touching rendition of "Amazing Grace" at the end, but we still don't know what kind of future Sheen will have. Not totally satisfying, but not a bad movie either. Just average.
