Corey Haim Dead At 38

Corey Haim It’s with great regret and sadness that the Retroland community says farewell to one of the original “brat pack” actors from the 1980s, “Lucas” and “The Lost Boys” star Corey Haim.

Haim was found in the early morning of Wednesday, March 10, 2010 in the apartment he shared with his mother. The cause of death is being preliminarily reported by the Los Angeles police department as an accidental overdose. Haim had been suffering flu-like symptoms. As of this writing, the official cause of death is pending an autopsy.

Haim was largely known as a child star who was often paired on-screen with his best friend, the actor Corey Feldman. Recently, Haim and Feldman could be seen on the reality show “The Two Coreys.” Haim was still very active in Hollywood at the time of his death as an actor, director and producer with nine films in pre-production, two completed and ready for release, and one, “The Dead Sea,” still being filmed.

Corey Haim means something to anyone who grew up in the 1980s… help us celebrate his life and work by sharing your memories with us in the comments.

    So sad.
    He was definitely a aprt of my 80′s childhood. Too many people I grew up watching or Idolizing, are leaving way too soon. RIP Corey

    I agree with Kendra. It’s shocking how many people from the 70s and 80s are gone and at such a young age. John Hughes, Farrah, Michael Jackson, Patrick Swayze and now Corey Haim. I adored him. I was hoping things would pick up for him.

    I was shock when my sister told me when I woke back up that Corey Haim has died. He’s two years older than me but I was a big fan of his since he did comercials, movie, and tv.
