It's sad, it's tragic but it wasn't unexpected. Not to me at least. And I like the rest of the world assumed his death was due to an overdose given his past history with drug addiction.
I fell in love with Corey Haim in the 80's, along with tons of millions of other girls all over the country. I even dated a guy because he looked like Corey Haim....yeah, I did.
He's had a drug problem for years, it took away his career and most of who he was. It was something that was inevitable, his death, but still it was a shock. As of two days after his death, reports say he had an enlarged heart and that is the reason for his death.
Just yesterday as I walked in the door from work, my kids had popped in "The Lost Boys" and we all watched it, we love that movie.
So, in honor of his career, I'm posting his movies.
