Corey Haim

In honor of the train wreck that was teen actor Corey Haim (1971-2010), here is the trailer for Dream a Little Dream (1989) -- surely the weirdest movie Haim and his frequent co-star Corey Feldman did together. It had a great cast, including Jason Robards, Piper Laurie and Harry Dean Stanton. It was made during Feldman's bizarro Michael Jackson phase (the two were friends, and Feldman dressed up like Jackson again for his funeral).

It's easier to talk about Feldman, even after Haim's untimely death (he was 38; cause of death unknown as of this writing) because Feldman was the more successful actor (Gremlins, The Goonies, Stand By Me), at least as a child actor. Both Coreys slipped into drug abuse after the peak of their fame in the late 80s.

"The Two Coreys," a reality show that followed Feldman and Haim as they tried to get back into acting, aired from 2007 to 2008, at which point Feldman expressed concern about having Haim around his family.
