RIP, Corey Haim
Those '80s phenoms the Coreys starred in several popcorn movies together, but the one whose title had the most resonance is obviously The Lost Boys.
Early fame, whacked values, and tons of drugs made it a rocky ride to the top and then back to the middle for these two guys, especially Corey Haim, who just died from an apparent accidental drug overdose after years of substance abuse issues.
Haim's addiction truly haunted him; with a reported 15 trips to rehab, he still hadn't slayed his dragon as he struggled with the weird existence of a movie star turned tabloid staple.
And 2010 is already making a claim as the grisliest show biz year in history.
