In honor of Corey Haim and his recent passing I have decided to share a list of my favorite films he was in. Haim was such an iconic actor that died way before his time in my opinion. After looking at his IMDB page it shows he was on the verge of a comeback of sorts and from other reports was currently living with his mother to help her recover from cancer. I remember growing up watching his movies as a teen and loving them even though many of them were cheesy as hell. So without further ado here are my favorite Corey Haim films.
Not as familiar as The Lost Boys but that would have been the easy choice and not mine. Lucas has a great story and a young Charlie Sheen and Winona Ryder starring as well. If you have not seen this movie it is actually really heartwarming and you can truly relate to it I am sure. Be on the lookout for a young Jeremy Piven as well.
License To Drive (1988)
I loved the combination of the two Corey’s in this movie. This film is a true 80′s classic in my opinion. The film also stars Heather Graham as Mercedes Lane, in her first feature film role. It is silly and full of cheesy situations but every time I see this on TV I cant help but watch.
Lost Boys (1987)
I really think that Lost Boys is the best made film out of all of the movies Haim starred in. I love this movie because of the vampire theme. This is the first film that Corey Haim and Corey Feldman starred together in which kicked off a number of films, most of them not so great movie.
Silver Bullet (1985)
Before Haim did the Lost Boys which made him famous he starred in a werewolf movie, Silver Bullet from Stephen King. Haim played Marty, a parapalegic boy who is confined to a wheelchair whose town is being terrorized by a werewolf.
Dream A Little Dream (1989)
Another popular pairing of Corey Haim and Feldman and I believe the last to actually appear in theaters. This is when his career started declining in my opinion. I only add it because I remember seeing this on a date when I was younger and how much a girl I dated in high school loved this movie. I can see the appeal because it does have a unique storyline.
