The 1980’s had its fair share of coming-of-age teen movies. Director John Hughes is credited for this trend, as some of his greatest films include the classics Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, Sixteen Candles, and Pretty in Pink among others.
This trend continued with two child stars in particular. Known as the “Two Coreys’,” Corey Feldman and Corey Haim stole the hearts of teen girls everywhere. They starred in a couple of films together and attracted the attention of Hollywood.
While both of their careers would begin to flounder after their success in the 80’s, it was Corey Haim who took it the hardest. Officially, his death in 2010 is due to pneumonia.
But, it was also reported that he had taken an unknown number of pills before he passed away. He was 38.
