A tortured soul.

Corey: "I was working on The Lost Boys (1987) when I smoked my first joint. But a year before that, I was starting to drink beer on the set of the film Lucas (1986). I lived in Los Angeles in the '80s, which was not the best place to be. I did cocaine for about a year and a half, then it led to crack. I started on the downers which were a hell of a lot better than the uppers because I was a nervous wreck. But one led to two, two led to four, four led to eight, until at the end it was about 85 a day - the doctors could not believe I was taking that much. And that was just the valium - I'm not talking about the other pills I went through."

I liked Lucas to a crazy degree when it came out because it was Winona Ryder's first role. But after watching it about 100x I have to say that Haim's fake glasses (which are obviously just non-prescription glass) became so distracting they really kinda ruined the whole thing for me, and I can't watch it anymore.

When I read that, a voice in my head said "'bout time..." How desensitized have I become? I mean, the last three or four episodes of The Coreys kind of hinted that he really didn't have anything under control, and something drastic needed to happen. Too bad it was this.

I feel pretty bad about this -- guy was fucked up. On the two Corey's reality show, he was just a walking disaster, so filled with self-loathing and a sense of constant betrayal that even the slightest interaction with him was fraught with peril. I can't blame Hollywood exclusively for what happened to Haim -- he was an adult and continued to make hideously destructive adult decisions -- but he'd been through the grinder. There were certainly signs that he had been molested when younger -- a lot of accusations against Feldman, whose friend was apparently responsible for it.

He was also still capable of turning in unexpectedly enjoyable performances -- I barely recognized him in the 2nd Crank movie, and he was hilarious in it.

Here's a true story about Haim. When he was still a teenager, he put out a video diary called Me, Myself, and I. It's pretty dreadful -- him sort of nattering at the camera about his career and philosophy (there's a strong anti-drug message that makes the whole thing feel like a public service project by somebody convicted of possession.) I worked at a video store in Westwood, and we had a staff favorites shelf, but we put a lot of joke favorites up there -- Terror of Tiny Town was a mainstay. We also put Haim's video up there for quite a while, until one day Corey Haim himself came into the store. He looked around the place for a while, finally noticed the staff favorites shelf, saw his own video, and quickly grabbed it. He marched up to the front and asked if he could buy it, and then did. We never saw him again. I presume he was searching for, and destroying, every copy of the film he could -- David Copperfield was doing the same thing with a film called Terror Train that he was embarrassed by.

This was 1992, so Haim must have been about 21. I used to think that story was pretty funny, but now it's got me wondering if, even at so young an age, his career was starting to be defined by shame.

It's a shame. Just a real shame.



I vaguely remember Lucas. Maybe it's worth putting on the Netflix queue.

However, Lost Boys was a great movie and had such a profound and lasting effect on me that when I finally saw Santa Cruz as a thirty-year-old man I thought, "This is where they filmed Lost Boys. Cool."

Also, Jamie Gertz set my standard for attractive.

Well, here in Utah, Gary Coleman has been terrorizing the place for a while.

He was also a renter at the video store. He regularly claimed videos to be broken, so he wouldn't have to pay for them. It got to the point where we couldn't refund the video until he showed us exactly where it was broken, which meant watching the movie in fast-forward until he'd say, here we are, this is where the screen got all snowy. It never was, though. The videos always worked perfectly.

Once I was walking down the street and Coleman was in front of me. He passed two young women, maybe students at UCLA. He stopped them. Ladies, I'd like to tell you something, he said. I passed him and went to an arcade, played video games for about half an hour. When I left, Coleman had assembled a crowd around him and was telling them about how his family had misappropriated his money, he was broke, and was working in a show store. He was actually stopping strangers in the street to tell his tale of woe.

That was actually the moment I started making plans to leave Los Angeles. It was just a terrifying thing to see.

...a lot of accusations against Feldman, whose friend was apparently responsible for it.

Actually, as I understood it, Haim was resentful towards Feldman, not because he held him responsible for what happened, but more out of the fact Feldman pretty much told him "walk it off and do some lines, sport."

Also, your story doesn't come as a surprise to me. When I met him in Toronto back in '01, he was still out of his head a bit. He was in a bad place. I remember the one part of the conversation where he asked if we were going to take pictures of him, and my friend and I shrugged our shoulders and told him we didn't have a camera. He was comforted by this a bit, but his reaction was a bit reserved. It was odd. He seemed to embrace his celebrity when two guys came up to him and wanted to meet him; almost as if he liked the attention, but then he switched gears and acted as if he wanted for us to engage with him just like anyone else. He asked us if we were going to a party or hanging out with other people, which we weren't. He then said he had somewhere to be, and took off.

I think he just wanted real friends, and he didn't know where to find them. When he saw the video, my guess is he thought it was a bit self-aggrandizing and embarrassing, but also because maybe he felt a bit detached from who the boy was in the video, and who he seemed to think he really was.

I've never envied him.

Jesus. I still remember seeing The Lost Boys in the theatre back in my high school days in Pine Bluff, Arkansas. In the back of my head, Corey Haim was always singing in a falsetto voice in the bathtub while his brother was outside the bathroom having vampire-related issues.

Celebrities from my formative years are no longer allowed to die while being younger than I am. I have spoken.

I remember a summer in my childhood that was dominated by The Lost Boys. I saw it a number of times, listened to the soundtrack constantly, consumed all available clip shows, articles and interviews about it, etc. etc. And Corey Haim was my favourite person in the movie.

You know how gay people read movies for gay content, even when it isn't overt? Jews do that too, or, at least, I do. If a movie or a show has a preponderance of Jews, especially in the lead roles, I try to understand the Jewish content of the film.

So here we have The Lost Boys, a film directed by a Jew, was scripted by a screenwriter with a Jewish last name (can't discover whether or not Jeffrey Boam was conclusively Jewish), and featured Corey Haim. Corey Feldman, Jami Gertz, and Alex Winter in lead roles -- all Jews.

So what is Jewish about a coastal town terrorized by preening teenage vampires? Well, in some ways, the film is about assimilation. The two brothers are given the option of assimilating into a new world of vampirism, and the older brother (played by an Irish actor) accepts it, while the younger brother teams with an anti-assimilationist Jew, played by Feldman, to fight it.

Is it an exact reading? No; these things never are, not unless they're done deliberately. But it works about as well as reading Superman as Jewish.

Of course, I'm also Irish, so there's a great desire to try and read the story as one of doomed Celtic rebels (Jason Patrick and Kiefer Sutherland) fighting the man by building an illegal still, with blood standing in for moonshine, but that one doesn't work as well.

It is an ancient child star,
And he stoppeth one of three.
`By thy short crest and glittering eye,
Now wherefore stopp'st thou me ?

The Arcade's doors are opened wide,
And I am keen to win ;
The fee is met, the game reset :
May'st hear the merry din.'

He holds him with his chubby hand,
`There was a show,' quoth he.
`Hold off ! unhand me, tiny loon !'
Eftsoons his hand dropt he.

He holds him with his glittering eye--
The Gamer he stood still,
And listens like a three years' child :
The Actor hath his will.

The Gamer sat down on a stone :
While lighting a cigar ;
And thus spake on that ancient shrimp,
The bright-eyed Child Star.

`The show was praised, the ratings raised,
Merrily we did play
Before the news, to rave reviews,
prime time was our soiree.

Arnold-mania did grip
the lands without a doubt;
everywhere was heard this quip,
my: "Whatchoo talkin' bout?"

Down dropt the numbers, down the fans,
My co-stars all were dicks ;
Till finally canceled we be,
in 1986.

Syndication everywhere,
upon my cursed soul!
Syndication everywhere,
but here I'm on the dole!

My very Trust did rot : O Christ !
That ever this should be !
Yea, slimy things did crawl with legs
And took my royalty.

Farewell, farewell! but this I tell
If thou wish to make good:
He prayeth well, who loveth well,
And fuck you, Hollywood.

The Child Star, whose eye is bright,
but stature not impressive,
Is gone : and now the Game Player
is left rather depressive.

He went like one that hath been stunned,
And is of sense forlorn :
A sadder and a wiser man,
He rose the morrow morn.

Now I'm curious about the age range of people that would feel a connection to this news -- probably just the people that were in their "nostalgia period" during Haim/Feldman's movie career peak (I was in my mid-teens when Lost Boys came out, so I'm about the perfect age to remember the pair fondly); my wife, in her very early '30s, also remembers Haim very well.

If we assume that License to Drive was the end of their peak phase (I don't recall any big, non-ironic Corey2 productions after that), in 1988, and that the youngest ages that would have been going to see this movie were probably 10 years old, you'd think that people born in '78 (now 32 years old) are the youngest people that would reasonably remember Haim very well.

But there's also the older sibling thing, which has an actual name that I can't remember; the idea being basically that the biggest pop-culture phenomena will actually resonate with people up to five years younger than the "target" age at the peak time, because big brother/big sister will have posters up, talk up the movies or music, force little bro' or little sis' to watch the movies on TV past their due date, etc.

So I'd guess that most people born later than '82-'83 wouldn't remember Haim at all, really, unless they were retroactive '80s buffs.

It's weird to think that somebody so prevalent in my memory would be so compartmentalized in a time period, but I guess it's the way of things; the radio station I used to run had a giant old room full of 45s, and I used to do a show for fill-in emergencies where I'd just grab a pile and work through 'em. I never recognized any of the names, which always made me a bit sad: so much effort, so much joy, so ephemeral.

I can confirm that. I'm 47. I am distantly related to the other Corey, so I followed them both out of the corner of my eye, like an older cousin keeping tabs on the kiddie table.

I saw some of the Two Coreys reality show and between Corey F's intensity and lifestyle pushiness, you could see Corey H just falling apart.

There is a LOT of screwed-upidness between the two of them.

I hate that this happened.

i know nothing about either corey except what i saw on a&e's 'the two coreys' show. for some reason i was fascinated with that. fascinated like train-wreck fascination. so my knowledge of corey haim is that he is a gigantic ass. humongous. galactic proportions.

also insecure as anyone i've ever known. as they say in a.a., an egomaniac with an inferiority complex. that boy was so painfully looking for love, friendship, and acceptance. and he was looking all over the place when what he really needed to do was look inside himself.

yeah. i'm sitting here in my office typing this & playing armchair psychologist. and thanking my lucky stars that for whatever reason, some people do manage to overcome addictions. and knock on wood, i'm one of them.

rest in peace, corey.

You know how gay people read movies for gay content, even when it isn't overt?

I thought for sure this was going to be about how Haim's character in Lost Boys is clearly a budding homosexual. (Actually, I suspect the character was supposed to be a bit younger than Haim was at the time, but his "girls are icky" pose plus the Rob Lowe poster in his bedroom read as gay).

He also sings "I ain't got a man, I ain't got a home, I'm a lonely girl, I ain't got no one" in a high falsetto.

But, then, it's a Joel Schumacher film -- the guy who put nipples on Batman. Some homoerotic subtext is expected.

Not surprised. Very very sad, but not surprised. Something about being a teen idol in the 80's turned so many of those kids into adults with drug issues, depression, and other various problems that come from...what? Hitting fame too young? Partying too hard? Seems like the kids who made it through teen-idol status and went on to be successful are the exception rather than the rule. While I loved Corey Feldman in Stand by Me, Haim was always my favorite. I didn't, however, watch the Two Coreys show or any other reality show with Haim in it, because I preferred to let him stay the young Corey I remembered from my idolizing teen years. Reality shows with actors who no longer act make me sad. Kind of like when someone you love is suffering from a long term illness, and you want to remember them as they were - full of life and happy, instead of struggling and in pain. Not that what I saw of Corey Haim in films was ever who he really was, but hey - movies are about everything but reality.

Lucas also made me cry. I had a TigerBeat poster of Corey Haim. I loved the Lost Boys, and it's one of those classics I need to show my now teenage (and almost teenage) sons. I guess now's a good time. As for the age thing? I'm 37.

Just over the 50 line here, and I feel no personal connection whatsoever (though sorry for a life lost in such a way). I've never seen The Lost Boys, or a single John Hughes movie. I'm definitely past the cutoff point: for me the 80s is when I disconnected with popular culture, so I'm outside the generational window. Just a data point. I probably would have have heard of Corey Haim if he hadn't been Canadian.

38 is kind of late for an accidental overdose.

Not any great performances from him (Meredith Salenger was the best part of Dream a Little Dream, for instance) but he and the other Frog brother was an icon (loved or despised, still an icon) in the lives of most GenX/early Y-ers.

He was one of us, and many of us felt like we knew him, and now he's gone. Always thought Bonaduce would go first.

Would really have liked to seen a Tarantino-driven revival of the boys as was previously mentioned. That would have been...wait for it....totally awesome.

Actually, the saddest thing I read about Haim today came from a two decade-old review of Lucas by Roger Ebert:

Lucas is played by Corey Haim, who was Sally Field's son in "Murphy's Romance," and he does not give one of those cute little boy performances that get on your nerves. He creates one of the most three-dimensional, complicated, interesting characters of any age in any recent movie. If he can continue to act this well, he will never become a half-forgotten child star, but will continue to grow into an important actor. He is that good.

So the loss of his life at so young an age is compounded by the waste of his talent. He could have been good. Hell, he could have been great. You see flashes of it here and there -- unlike Feldman, who always seems be to acting, Haim would get completely lost in a scene. At his best, he never grandstanded, never showboated, but just inhabited his films, as bad as they might have often been. In another world, there is another Haim, and he's seen as a great actor. Somehow he avoided the drugs and his personality was strong enough not to be destroyed by the toxic effects of young fame and fortune. That's a better world than this one.

I'm 34, with a six-years-older sibling and a four-years-older pop-culture-immersed spouse (it comes with our territory), and I think it's a bummer. I liked License to Drive, and, well, I saw Danny Bonaduce slouch down the street one too many times when I worked in West Hollywood.

I can't help thinking that guys like Wil Wheaton could've easily gone that way if not for some essential difference-- maybe Wil's just too into D&D and SF to have gotten into the teen-star drug thing, who knows.

*sheepishly raises hand*

My first job in Hollywood was working for a couple of producers who made License to Drive, which is a film I've always enjoyed, so I know probably more than I'd ever need to about that movie. Corey and Corey's other co-star from the film was a young Grant Heslov, who later found great success as an Academy Award-nominated film producer.

Coincidentally, the Oakwood Apartments were Haim died was also my first residence when I moved to Los Angeles about 10 years ago, so I've always had fond memories of that bizarre patch of land on the hill between Burbank and Hollywood.

My eyes weren't even open all the way when the tears started streaming down my face. I am so sorry for Corey, his mother Judy, his family, my family, all of our fans, and of course my son who I will have to find a way to explain this to when he gets home from school. This is a tragic loss of a wonderful, beautiful, tormented soul, who will always be my brother, family, and best friend. We must all take this as a lesson in how we treat the people we share this world with while they are still here to make a difference. Please respect our families as we struggle and grieve through this difficult time. I hope the art Corey has left behind will be remembered as the passion of that for which he truly lived."

Lots of blame being passed to drug, alcohol, and fame at an early age. But lots of people drink, do drugs, and are famous and don't live the kind of wrecked life that Corey Haim did. So what happened?

I guess getting raped by your best friend's best friend would sort of suck, huh? And I don't mean that flippantly. Who do you have when you're a child star, completely vulnerable to the world, parents shuttling you around to auditions, and the one friend you have (or think you have) fails to protect you from being completely ruined. Not that I blame Feldman - he was just a kid, too, and was being molested at the same time.

But, look, you watch the footage of Haim in those The Two Coreys clips and he is just a complete walking wound. Completely fragile, trusts nobody, and always a poor choice of words away from meltdown. Those are the scars of trauma, and it's not all that difficult to imagine where he got them.

With all due respect to Roger Ebert, and I have lots, I don't think that Haim doing so well in Lucas was more a matter of the director casting someone who was perfect in the part of the outsider who is desperate to fit in, but doesn't really have a chance. That's also the kind of character that Haim played in Lost Boys. Ditto for Corey Feldman; if you remember Teddy Duchamp, the character that he played in Stand By Me, he was someone who would carry the scars of physical abuse from a mentally-ill father for the rest of his life. That's why, whenever I'd see Haim doing his sort of teen idol thing in the 80s, my irritation was always leavened a bit by pity, because he came off as the kid who tries way, way too hard.

I spent some time this morning watching clips from The Two Coreys. It was hard to square him as a man with my nostalgic image of him from his films. He was a messed-up manchild. Even Corey Feldman thought he was annoying. That's saying something. And much as Feldman annoys the crap out of me, I have to give him kudos for getting sober and making some sort of life for himself.

But hell, how do you learn to be a functional adult when your allocated teenage fucking-up-and-learning time is occupied by groupies, lecherous assistants and lines of coke? It's just damn sad and my heart is breaking for his mom. No one should have to bury their kid.

As it has been mentioned previously, Lucas was a very good vehicle for Haim and in hindsight was a kind of crossroads that Astro Zombie explained very well. He had real talent, but no real foundation to his personal life. A shame.

I remember being so in love with Corey Haim when I was in elementary school. I had so many little pin-ups of him. This was before I was so in love with Joey McEntire from New Kids on the Block. And before I was so in love with Dylan McKay. I used to count down to the day when the new issue of Bop would be published, and I'd beg my Dad to take me to the store to buy it. Although (off-topic), I was looking at old issues of Bop on eBay and thinking about how often enough my Dad would surprise me by buying me the magazine himself. Now, as an almost 30 year-old woman I wouldn't be caught dead buying a magazine like that for me or anyone else, and it brings tears to my eyes thinking about how my Dad (completely not their intended reader as a middle-aged man) would not be too embarrassed to buy something so frivolous and silly for his daughter.

Aww, Corey Haim.. poor thing. Just another part of my relatively happy childhood (well, until that ended with my father's death) being chipped away. Anyhow, RIP Corey Haim.
