Update: Okay, so it looks like Haim is in this one, negating everything I said below. But the whole enterprise still makes me sad, as a grim, blatant reminder of the Coreys fall from fame.
If you had asked me a week ago if any movie could possibly be hurt by not starring Corey Haim…well, I’d have laughed in your face. And yet, here it is?Lost Boys 2: The Tribe?which is taking its lonely Corey Feldman-ian glory and heading straight to DVD, and that by bringing only one Corey back they’ve recreated that “Lost Boys magic” in any way, shape, or form. I defy you to watch the above clip and not just be sad for everyone involved?and especially sad that Corey Haim couldn’t even get a role on this. Can someone put him on suicide watch, please?
