~RIP Corey Heim

This week we lost one of our 80's icons. Corey Haim. I know I found him cute when I was younger. So in his honor I bring you a bonus week-end movie. This is one of his best.So forget all about what you know of his troubles and sit back and enjoy this touching movie. RIP Corey. Lucas (1986)~
