Corey Haim, one of the ’80s brightest teen stars, was found dead aged 38 of an accidental drug overdose. Haim was most recently in Crank: High Voltage and a cameo in the ill-advised Lost Boys sequel. His drug addiction was well-publicized in a reality series he did with best friend Corey Feldman called (what else?) “The Two Coreys.”
Haim’s career reached its peak when he and Feldman did a series of teen movies in the 1980s (Dream a Little Dream, License to Drive). Though both Coreys were child actors (Haim in Lucas and Silver Bullet, Feldman in Gremlins and The Goonies), the two also starred together in one of the best vampire movies in the last 30 years, The Lost Boys.

Rest in peace, Corey. You will be missed. (I plan on a retrospective viewing of as many of your movies as I can get my hands on, ASAP.)
