Corey Haim was 38 when he died, six years ago. It was a life ended much too soon after struggles with drug addiction. But while some will memorialize Haim with stories of his difficult life, we prefer to remember him for his true legacy: the movies he made. Haim was a natural and talented actor, a 1980s teen heartthrob who charmed his fans whether he was tackling a complex movie role or just offering his lopsided grin in a teen-magazine photo. Roger Ebert, reviewing his breakout role as the title character of Lucas, praised him highly: "He creates one of the most three-dimensional, complicated, interesting characters of any age in any recent movie. If he can continue to act this well, he will never become a half-forgotten child star, but will continue to grow into an important actor. He is that good."
On the anniversary of Haim's death, we hope you'll remember him by watching one of his movies – Lucas is a great choice, as are Murphy's Romance, Dream a Little Dream and The Lost Boys. And you can whet your appetite by clicking through our gallery of photos from his movies.
