Former Teen Star Corey Haim Dies At 38
  |  @   |  

Former teen star Corey Haim died this morning in Los Angeles of an accidental overdose. He was 38.

the Los Angeles Police Department confirmed the actor’s death to TV station KTLA. He was found unresponsive in his apartment at around 3:30 am and was later pronounced dead at Providence St. Joseph’s Medical Center in Burbank.

The Canadian actor is best known for his childhood starring roles against onscreen buddy Corey Feldman in the 1980s in License to Drive and The Lost Boys, movies that quickly led to his teen idol status. While the 80s brought great success for Haim, the following decade did not follow suit. Haim’s roles consisted mostly of direct-to-video flops and the actor struggled to get back his once successful career while dealing with bankruptcy, drug dependency, and stints in rehab.

Warner Premiere
Release Date: July 29, 2008

After Chris is kicked off his surfing team and loses his endorsements, he and his sister head off to the sleepy town of Luna Bay to lay low and hopefully start anew. Within twenty-four hours of arriving in the town, he discovers that his one-time surfing idol Shane lives in the town, meets up with a delusional surfboard shaper who claims to be a vampire hunter named Edgar Frog, is invited to a party at Shane’s who picks up Chris’ sister Nicole, and has sex with a woman who turns out be a vampire.

Confused, bewildered, and none-to-happy that Nicole also seems to be displaying symptoms of vampirism, Chris turns to Edgar for some unbelievable advice. Edgar, who has been hunting vampires for more than twenty years, quickly catches Chris up to speed with a stack of comic books. He tells Chris that Nicole is only half-vampire — as long as they can kill the head vampire before she feeds, she will be saved. And with that, Chris makes the fateful decision to become half-vampire himself so he has the strength to fight, while Edgar loads up on stakes and holy water to dispatch this latest tribe of bloodsuckers who have invaded his town.

Music Review: The Lost Boys: The Tribe Soundtrack

The Lost Boys: The Tribe Soundtrack

Release date: July 22, 2008

In my job, I’m frequently in rental cars, hotels, and airplanes, which gives me some down time to listen to tunes (though because I usually have a metric ton of work to do, I can’t contribute to GoD like I used to). So, when I received the CD of the soundtrack to Lost Boys: The Tribe, I felt I could get a few listens as I drove hither, thither, and through yon cornfields.

So on my way to a small Midwestern college through the Illinois farmland, I switched off of Fred 44 on XM and popped in the CD. Frankly, I wasn’t expecting much, since the movie was a rather unauthorized sequel of a movie that I always felt was OK, but not all that and a silver crucifix. Plus, it starred one of the Coreys, a dude that looked like a younger Corey, a generic hot chick, and the half-brother of Kiefer Sutherland. (What? Were Joe Estevez and Robert Z’Dar not available?)
