Actor Corey Haim Found Dead at Age 38

Actor Corey Haim has been found dead at age 38 in his apartment from an apparent overdose. While this will be a harsh reminder to many of how out of control drugs and our society have become, many of us eighties children will reminisce on the movies he starred in that we love. A quick glimpse at his filmography shows a career spanning over two decades with classics such as The Lost Boys in the list. Although Haim had fallen from grace as a child actor, and had become the brunt of many jokes this decade – mostly due to a reality tv stint with fellow Corey in the Two Coreys. He was working and doing his thing with five movies in pre-production and a possible comeback in 2010.

For you young readers who have no clue who this man is and why the internet blogosphere is lining up to post news of his death, rent or pick up a movie called The Lost Boys from Netflix. Here’s a sad video of Corey and his good friend Corey Feldman discussing his battle with drugs:
