Corey Feldman . . . Jinx or Serial Killer?
Earlier this week, my esteemed colleague Cassidy Chase interrupted her blog to pay tribute to the late actor Corey Haim. Today, I will interrupt my blog to ask a simple question: Corey Feldman . . . Jinx or Serial Killer?
Corey Feldman stars with River Phoenix in the 1986 film Stand By Me. Seven years later, on October 31, 1993, River Phoenix dies of a drug overdose outside of the Viper Room in Hollywood, California.
Around the same time of the filming of Stand By Me, Corey Feldman begins a friendship with the King of Pop, Michael Jackson. The two would have what Feldman himself describes as a “falling out” on September 10, 2001. Almost eight years later, on June 25, 2009, Michael Jackson dies of a drug overdose that police would later rule a homicide.
On the day Michael Jackson died, Corey Feldman is quoted as saying about his former friend “All I choose to remember from this point is the good times we shared and what an inspiration he was to me and the rest of the world.”
A year after the filming of Stand By Me, Corey Feldman and Corey Haim appear together in the film The Lost Boys.
Twenty-three years later, on March 10, 2010, Corey Haim dies of ”pulmonary congestion” although police initially suspected cause of death was due to drug overdose. Speaking with Larry King ofn the day of Haim’s death, Corey Feldman stated “He was his own enemy. I mean, look, a lot of people that are artists tend to be their own worst enemy because we’re passionate people.”
Is there a Corey Feldman Conspiracy? Is this merely a coincidence?
Or should Wil Wheaton and Jerry O’Connell watch their backs?
