Dead of an apparent [shocker] drug overdose. When they were younger, my money would've been on Feldman.

He lasted longer than i imagined. I remember seeing him in an interview where he was slurring his words so much that you could not understand a single thing coming out of his mouth. To be fair though the acting world is not gonna be missing any great talent.

Ehh, another little bit of the 80's gone. Silver Bullet and The Lost Boys were two 80's horror movies I enjoyed a lot.

Sad news. I thought his best work was in the film Lucas. It couldn't have been easy in the end when the only work he could get was that stupid reality show, which was made to entertain viewers by focusing on all the negatives the guy had to live with.

Yeah, always figured that Feldman would be the first Corey they found dead with a needle stuck in his arm.

Re: ... and then there was one. Corey Haim dead.

Roger Ebert seemed to think he had potential back in 1986 when Lucas came out:

"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."

Haim was a lot more of a mess than Feldman ever was. Not sure why everyone is so surprised that Haim died first.

Dying at 38 of a drug overdose is a stupid way to go.

Corey Haim DID NOT die from a drug overdose. He died from a Chuck overdose. Happy Birthday Chuck Norris!




R.I.P. Corey

Bankrupt/broke and dead at 38 after making a living at least pretending to have sex with Nicole Eggert in "Blown Away"!

Aren't drugs swell!
