"(My) Truth: The Rape of 2 Coreys" is a 2020 documentary that details the supposed sexual abuse experienced by 2 famous child actors, Corey Feldman and Corey Haim. Feldman produced the film to expose the predatory habits that he and Haim sustained while working in the show business during the 1980s and 90s. The documentary particularly highlights the abuse suffered by Haim, who passed away in 2010 at the age of 38, and its destructive impact on his life.Corey Feldman's Fight for Justice
Corey Feldman produced "(My) Truth: The Rape of 2 Coreys" after guaranteeing Haim before his death that he would reveal the names of their abusers. Feldman has long promoted for child defense laws in Hollywood and had actually released a book in 2013, "Coreyography", detailing his experiences with drug addiction and abuse.
Feldman produced the documentary to hold those responsible for the abuse responsible and to urge survivors to come forward. The film features reviews from fellow actors, an abuse survivor turned advocate, and Feldman's own spouse (who did not experience the abuse direct).
The production of the movie has been stuffed with troubles, from monetary limitations and legal roadblocks to death risks versus Feldman, who has actually required cops protection due to the delicate nature of the documentary.Painful Experiences of Abuse
In the movie, Corey Feldman declares that Haim informed him about his first experience of rape at the age of 14 by an unnamed man. This disclosure leads Feldman to share his own experience of being sexually abused by various guys who were associated with the industry. Feldman claims that their abusers would pass them around to one another, producing a network of predators within Hollywood.
"(My) Truth: The Rape of 2 Coreys" names a few particular abusers who took advantage of Feldman and Haim's vulnerability and gain access to. Feldman identifies Charlie Sheen, Jon Grissom, Alphy Hoffman, and Marty Weiss as a few of the individuals accountable for the abuse. Sheen, who has actually dealt with sexual misconduct accusations in the past, has actually strongly denied any participation in Haim's abuse, with his representatives calling the accusations "ill, twisted, and outlandish".Impact on Haim's Life and Death
Haim's mother, Judy Haim, has actually revealed her disapproval of the documentary and has been vital of Feldman's decision to produce it. She thinks that her child's story is being exploited which the documentary exists exclusively for Feldman's own revenue and prestige.
Corey Haim's terrible death in 2010, which was ruled as unintentional, has actually been mainly credited to his long history of drug addiction. The movie argues that Haim's drug abuse was a direct outcome of the abuse he had suffered as a kid in the show business.Reception and Impact
"(My) Truth: The Rape of 2 Coreys" premiered on March 9, 2020, in Los Angeles and faced some technical issues with the synchronised online streaming. Some critics argue that the movie did not have strong evidence of the claims made by Feldman, while others praise the guts it took for him to speak up against his abusers.
In spite of the controversy surrounding the documentary, it has unquestionably triggered a discussion about child sexual abuse within the show business and the need for more stringent protection laws. The bravery revealed by Feldman in telling his and Haim's stories emphasizes the value of attending to these problems and supporting survivors of abuse as they seek justice and recovery.
