Following in the tradition of #MeToo and Leaving Neverland, actor Corey Feldman will go public with allegations of pedophilia against several Hollywood power players. The documentary (my) Truth: The Rape of 2 Coreys will stream as a one-time pay per view event March 9.
Feldman, known for roles in The Goonies and Stand By Me, has spent years trying to name names in what he describes as Hollywood’s pedophile underground. (my) Truth: The Rape of 2 Coreys will chronicle the sexual abuse of Feldman and his frequent costar Corey Haim at the hands of a number of men early on in the careers of both actors. Both Feldman and Haim blame the abuse for sexual confusion, emotional and substance abuse problems they struggled with later in life. Feldman eventually recovered and continues to work as an actor. Haim struggled to keep his career on track before his death of drug-related pneumonia in 2010 at age 38.
The unusual distribution strategy for the film may stem from legal issues surrounding its content. The film, financed entirely by Feldman, will air only once on pay per view. Feldman promised Haim before his death that he, Feldman, would go public with the identities of their abusers. He’s attempted to do so for more than 10 years, but run into legal issues with identifying their attackers. That includes a memoir released in 2013, in which lawyers forced Feldman to change the names to protect his abusers.
Tickets for (my) Truth: The Rape of 2 Coreys go on sale February 22 at www.MyTruthDoc.com. In addition to Feldman, several friends and family members of he and Haim appear in the documentary, offering their own insight into the abuse.
