Letting the cat out of the bag
Actor Corey Feldman has announced that he will be naming Hollywood pedophiles in an upcoming livestream documentary about his experience as a child actor.
Feldman will also address the alleged abuse late actor Corey Haim suffered at the hands of the same purported pedophiles.
The actor released the trailer for the documentary — "(My) Truth: The Rape of 2 Coreys" — on Tuesday.
What are the details?
The film is set to be aired one time via livestream on March 9. Tickets go on sale on Feb. 22. Movieweb reports that Feldman said Netflix declined to distribute the film because it is "too dangerous."
In the newly released trailer, Feldman can be seen speaking to an interviewer about the 911 call he placed to report the alleged sexual abuse.
Feldman looks apprehensive as the interviewer pulls up audio footage of what appears to be the 911 call on a cell phone, which he prepares to play for Feldman.
"After a lifetime of abuse ... a lifetime of silence ... a lifetime of living in fear ... their truth is finally coming," the trailer reads.
Tears stream down Feldman's cheeks after he listens to the recording and hands the phone back to the interviewer.
In 2007, both Feldman and Haim appeared on a reality show called "The 2 Coreys," during which the two opened up about the alleged abuse they suffered at the hands of Hollywood pedophiles. During the show, Feldman promised Haim — who battled a long drug addiction — that he would expose their abusers if Haim died before the two were able to do it together.
Haim passed away in 2010 following a bout of pneumonia.
In 2013, Feldman released best-selling book "Coreyography," in which he discussed the alleged abuse. Due to legal reasons, he was not able to name the abusers in the book.
In 2016, Feldman told The Hollywood Reporter that one of his alleged abusers is still working in the entertainment business.
"We've run into each other many times but no, I've never confronted him," Feldman said at the time.
The long-time actor dished out serious advice to parents of child actors during a 2017 interview with Newsweek.
"I'd advise their parents to never leave [child actors] unattended. Ever. Period," he warned. "I don't care if they're 14 and they want to go to a party with the adult cast, you go with them. It doesn't matter what someone's reputation is or how successful they are. Knowing all that you know about the industry, I truly believe leaving your child alone on set or at a party is negligence. Straight up negligence."
What else do we know about the film?
According to Movieweb, "Corey chose [the one-time livestreaming distribution] so nobody could twist the story in their own way before the viewing audience has a chance to see [the project] for themselves and make their own decisions about what really happened."
You can purchase tickets for the screening at MyTruthDoc beginning on Feb. 22. Viewers will be able to watch the film from the same website on March 9 at 8 p.m. PST. Tickets will be $20 according to the outlet.
