Read it pretty quickly but had to push they to finish Read it after reading corey feldmans book to see what this author had to say Corey Ian Haim December , March , Was A Canadian Actor, Known For A S Hollywood Career As A Teen Idol He Starred In A Number Of Films Such As Lucas, Silver Bullet, Murphy S Romance, License To Drive And Dream A Little Dream His Best Known Role Was Alongside Corey Feldman In The Lost Boys, Which Made Haim A Household NameKnown As The Two Coreys, The Duo Became S Icons And Went On To Star In Seven Further Movies Together, Later Starring In The AE Reality Show The Two CoreysHaim S Early Success Led To Money And Fame, And He Began Using Drugs By Fifteen For Three Years In The Late S, Haim Was The Most Famous Teenager In The World He Had Difficulties Breaking Away From His Experience As A Teen Actor, And Was Troubled By Drug Addiction Throughout His Later CareerThis Book Takes A Look Into The Late Actors Life Terrible, terrible, terrible editing so much so that it s a bit insulting, but definitely deserves a look if read as a follow up to Corey Feldman s bio Coreyography It is nowhere near as riveting, but is stands as a fairly good resource when used as a guide for Feldman s own claims in his biography It s a worth it read. This is a cheaply made poorly edited book It has spelling errors and obvious large cut and paste jobs for various sources However it is what it is and fills a few gaps Having watched pretty much every teen comedy brat pack movie churned out in the 80s I spent much of my tweenties watching the obscure movies made by the stars of these films, as their careers took different paths mostly downwards I ve read two fascinating to me books recently Corey Feldman s autobiography, and a biography of Corey Haim Drug addiction means Haim is dead and unable to tell his own story Corny, but I still clearly remember the shock at hearing of his death while I was driving through Skye in 2010.I was a big fan of many of their films including a lot of their obscure straight to video releases Blown Away, Just One of The Girls, Bordello of Blood, Dream Machine, Prayer of The Rollerboys and Dream a Little Dream 1 2.Feldman s book reads like a pretty honest account of his life He talks about the wild times when he was a pretty big star in films like Goonies, Stand By Me, Lost Boys, Gremlins, Friday 13th and Licence to Drive He cleaned up his act, and continues to make 2 or 3 films a year, as well as enjoying making music with his band and being a dad The pages on his friendship with Michael Jackson are a good read too I ve got your number in my Little Black Book now Corey thanks for that Michael The sexual abuse, alcohol and drugs young actors appear to be exposed too is all pretty grim stuff It s nice to read of the few older, wiser hands, who did try to help these young guys through some of their tough times Richard Donner and Stephen Speilberg for Feldman, and Joel Schumacher for Haim.Unlike Feldman, Corey Haim couldn t survive it all Decline in popularity, worsening drug addiction and numerous failed rehab visits ultimately contributed to his premature death.Of the two Coreys, Haim was the better actor, and had charm and charisma A raft of co stars speak very highly of his talent and potential throughout his short lived career But an inability to stay drug free was his undoing.Some ten years after he directed Corey Haim in Lost Boys, Joel Schumacher called him in to audition with George Clooney for the role of Robin in Batman and Robin Joel knew Corey was struggling with drugs but hoped he could clean up his act and live up to his potential I think Haim s slack jawed wise cracking improvisational style would have made an ideal Boy Wonder, but it was not to be Corey was out of it for his audition and there was no way the part could be his Clooney firmly agreed Schumacher took Corey out for dinner that night to talk to him, but over the meal Haim suffered a grand mal seizure and had to be taken to hospital.The later years of Corey Haim s life are filled with similar tales of excess and resulting ill health A sad book but also a thrill to re live some of the old obscure b movies he made I was always less of a fan of Feldman but warmed to him after reading his book I ll always be a Haim fan but his career is really now sadly long forgotten by most He should be remembered as comic book fan Sam Emerson in Lost Boys filled with wide eyed wonder, boundless energy and playful enthusiasm, and not for his bloated cameo in spin off Lost Boys 2 The Tribe and some of his other late 90s guff It really is a shame he never managed to get it together He could have been than just one half of a novelty pairing. I have been a Corey fan for years, though I missed his first flush of popularity I discovered his teen movies on VHS after his star had faded in the mid 90 s To this day I still enjoy them I was subsequently really sad to hear of his death This book does a good job of patching the pieces together and offers an insight into what went wrong in Corey s life Some pictures would have been nice, and the book is full of typo s kindle edition , however, it s a small grizzle I enjoyed it.
