Where is Corey Haim?

Both are in total awe of the future Corey decline.

He made us laugh, he made us cry, and he made us wish we got a lobotomy. The all too awful Corey catalog is permanently hardwired into the brains of those who grew up in the 80s. My older sister was a closet Haim fan. His poster hung precariously by tack inside her closet. I recall her many times professing her dedication and eternal love to the former tiger-beat heart throb. One would assume that he was put out of his misery years ago by a rich cocktail of fast living and heavy drug use. Guess again. According to IMB, he lived to work another day. I'm guessing his latest effort: Universal Groove will flop. Then again, you never know. His partner in crime has made a kind of sort of comeback proving yet again that all the drugs in the world can't keep a good Corey down. Don't worry kids, Life is Crap will keep you informed about the Corey's past, present, and future projects including Corey: trivia, quotes, movie reviews, and side projects. We won't stop until they stop. Our audience (All three of you guys.) demands it or something.

Universal Groove was originally scheduled to be released in 2004. My guess is that movie must be too good to release or the public is not ready for another Corey related riot. I was able to find the producer's Universal Groove blog here. In his 2-13-2006 entry, some questions get answered, however more questions are raised. Sandeep Panesar discusses how they have gone through three editors, the dialogue had to be redone for some scenes, some film was stolen. All in all there has been four post-production restarts. I'm not sure what that is, but it sounds bad!

I never realized how much Corey Haim's acting talent has deteriorated since Lucas. How many takes were there for each scene? Was the film delayed for a Corey related drug hiatus? Robbery? Did someone steal Corey's hairspray? Editor turnover? I guess it takes a special editor make Haim’s acting believable. I got to keep tabs on the progress of this blockbuster going straight to video. The good news is that it only took seven years, which is short considering the Corey factor. Then again this could be the film to make us believe in Corey Haim again.

According to the Wikipedia page for Universal Groove, Corey OD'd on set.

RIP. He sure was a looker who once had it all. Poor Corey. I swear my entire childhood seems to be dying.
