My Favorite Performances of Corey Haim
Originally published days after his passing, I am keeping this hub up as a tribute to the underrated actor. Please feel free to leave a memory or tribute in the
If you were a child of the 80s or even a fan of the films of that great decade, you had to have been affected by the news of the Death of Corey Haim on Wednesday, March 10, 2010. I know it's a cliche they use when some celebrity dies that they were on the verge of a comeback but I have been looking forward to seeing him get back on the screen after his small role in Crank 2. It was very sad to turn on the computer that morning and see "Lost Boys star found dead at 38" with a recent photo of Haim alongside the caption.
My prayers go out to the family and friends that did know him, especially his Mother, who was already going through a struggle with cancer, one can only imagine what it must be like to lose her son.
The following is a list of my favorite performances from Corey.
Rest In Peace, Corey Haim 1971-2010.
THE LOST BOYS (1987)
By the late 80s, Wham had broken up, Hall & Oates had started winding things down a bit, The world was ready for another duo. Thank God for Joel Schumacher, who I will forgive for Batman & Robin only because he had the foresight to put the Coreys, Feldman & Haim together. This is where it all began! Here's The trailer.
Stephen King's Silver Bullet (1985)
Horror Classic? Not in the least, however, I feel his performance in this film has been overlooked in the media coverage of the last few days. He was very believable in his role of a handicapped boy in a small town besieged by Werewolf attacks. Here is the trailer of which he is only in at about the 1:05 mark.
DREAM A LITTLE DREAM (1989)
my personal favorite of the Coreys team-up. Everything about this film is so right. Funny, dramatic, Beautiful, touching story. There is a Dream A Little Dream 2 that does not have much in the way of the dramatic, beautiful, or touching but it still has it's moments if you have the right mindframe going in.
Prayer Of The Rollerboys (1990)
Definitely a guilty pleasure of mine. Please do not go through life without at least seeing this once.
