Corey Haim reported dead at age 38
You might know him as one of “The Two Coreys”, along with Corey Feldman. This connection was established with The Lost Boys , one of the forces behind the modern teenage, angst-ridden vampire genre. Corey Haim was Sam, the outsider: Feldman is one of the Frog brothers, geeks who educate Sam about bloodsuckers. Kiefer Sutherland, by the way, plays a lead vampire.
Before that, he was on the Canadian show The Edison Twins…which I remember as well (although not specifically for Haim).
He and Feldman co-starred in a reality series, The Two Coreys. Whether that was the specific impetus or not, , Haim’s career picked up after that (and after his sequel to The Lost Boys, released in 2008). At the time of his reported death, he had more than a handful of movies awaiting release. One of those is The Science of Cool, a comedy about nerds changing their lives.
