Haim and Feldman next appeared together in the film Dream a Little Dream (1989), which was another fan favorite. That same year, in response to speculations about his heavy drug use, Haim released a video documentary about his life entitled Corey Haim: Me, Myself, and I. The film portrayed a squeaky-clean Haim engaging in wholesome, family-friendly activities and speculating about his future aspirations.
But Haim's fame waned as he entered the 90s and, after a spell in rehab, doctors put Corey on prescription drugs. The decision led to a more serious addiction to Valium - Haim later claimed he was taking upwards of 85 of the pills a day - and a serious weight gain. After 15 attempts at rehab, the 200-pound Haim suffered a stroke. All the while, the actor was managing bit parts in films such as Prayer of the Rollerboys (1990), Dream Machine (1991) and Dream a Little Dream 2 (1995)
In 2007, after more than a decade of bit parts, Haim signed on to the A&E series The Two Coreys, which investigated the modern lives of Feldman and Haim. In the show, the longtime friends and co-stars discussed their problems and chequered pasts with a therapist, and attempted to revive their shattered friendship. The show aired for 19 episodes before its cancelation in 2008.
On March 10, 2010, Haim was found unresponsive in an Oakwood, California, apartment after an apparent overdose. According to reports, his mother was also in the apartment at the time of his death. Haim was rushed to a Burbank, California, hospital, where he was officially declared dead. He was 38 years old.
