    Corey Feldman (L), and Corey Haim attend the A&E Premiere Of 'The Two Coreys' held at Sugar nightclub on July 27, 2007 in Hollywood California.

    Corey Haim passed away from an apparent drug overdose Wednesday. Herein, a collection of his contributions to '80s-era film along with his partner in forename, Corey Feldman.

    The Lost Boys (1987)
    In which Santa Carla has all those damn vampires
    Basically playing Bella to Kieffer Sutherland's Edward, Haim's the biggest character in the film who isn't a vampire. This was his first turn with Feldman, introducing what would become the actors' familiar dynamic: Haim plays a relatively normal, slightly effete guy, and Feldman's a tweeked-out kid educated by comics and haunted by the occult.

    Haim's best line: "I'm at the mercy of your sex glands, bud." Recommended clips: The Michael and David fight scene, Haim and Feldman interviewed about the movie, and, here we go, the entire movie on YouTube. Part one below:

    License to Drive (1988)
    In which Haim implausibly dates miles above his station
    The quintessential Haim/Feldman flick. Feldman's penchant for oversized sunglasses makes him look pre-pubescent, and because Haim's love interest, Mercedes, is played by a stunningly coifed Heather Graham. It's been a rocky romantic road for Graham since her real-life dalliance with Haim (she apparently considered Ed Helms a step up).

    "Drive" is notable for this coming-of-age Orwellian pronouncement: "God giveth, and the DMV taketh away. You mustn't f*ck with the Department of Motor Vehicle. We can make your life a living hell." As for clips, this chipmunkian reel of Haim, sped up for comic effect, is a keeper. Below, the original trailer, featuring Billy Ocean's "Get Out of My Dreams":

     

    Dream a Little Dream (1989)
    In which Corey Feldman basically plays the Jodi Foster/Jamie Lee Curtis role from "Freaky Friday"
    Basically a tepid antecedent to Freaky Friday, Dream a Little Dream sees Haim playing backup for Feldman, who's switched bodies with a mewling suburban hippy (Jason Robards, that spring chicken). The movie's notable for two things: Haim acknowledges his gameshow fetish ("I'm dreaming. Apache women. Mai-taihs. Vanna White and a whip") and Dream a Little Dream 2, which you may remember from its alternate title, Nightmare on C-Lister Street.
