Corey Feldman said Tuesday that he will be naming Hollywood pedophiles in an upcoming livestream documentary about his experience as a child actor.
Feldman, 48, has often said he and his childhood friend Corey Haim were molested as young actors by entertainment industry heavyweights. But he has been cagey about the abusers’ identities, citing legal and physical threats.
In an interview on E! News, Feldman said he would finally honor his promise to Haim, who died in 2010 following drug and alcohol problems, to “say the names of who did what and the details of who did what, and that’s what’s important.”
Also Tuesday, Feldman released a trailer for the documentary, “My Truth: The Rape of 2 Coreys,” which he self-financed and will self-distribute.

In the one-and-a-half-minute clip, Feldman is seen sitting on a couch in a gold collared shirt with a loosened tie. An unseen interviewer asks about a 911 call he placed to report an incident of abuse.
Feldman does not speak, but a tear is seen slowly rolling down his cheek.
According to Feldman the documentary will air one time on March 9 at 11 p.m. EST. E-tickets will go on sale Feb. 22 for $20.
How Corey Feldman made a documentary about Hollywood pedophiles
At the height of the #MeToo movement in 2017, Feldman launched a crowdfunding campaign for a documentary exposing child sexual abuse in Hollywood. He said pedophilia is rampant in Hollywood.
“What I am proposing is a plan that can literally change the entertainment system as we know it,” he says in a promotional video. “I believe that I can also bring down, potentially, a pedophile ring that I have been aware of since I was a child. Right off the bat, I can name six names, one of them who is still very powerful today. And a story that links all the way up to a studio. It connects pedophilia to one of the major studios.”
On a podcast in October, Feldman suggested that Netflix was “too scared” to air his documentary.
Feldman reached the height of his fame in the 1980s in tandem with Haim. He beat out Haim for the role of Mouth in 1984’s “The Goonies” and the two later worked together in a string of movies, including 1986’s “Stand By Me.” The boys came to be known as “The Two Coreys.”
On “The Dr. Oz Show” in 2017, Feldman named one of his alleged abusers. He said his former co-star Jon Grisson, whom he called Ron Crimson in his 2014 memoir “Coreyography,” had molested of him. Grissom, who has a prior child molestation conviction, is believed to be living in Mexico.
Los Angeles police reportedly investigated Feldman’s accusations at the time but abandoned the probe within the year, citing the expiration of the statute of limitations.
Before his death, Haim also alleged that he was molested as a child actor, but he never named an abuser.
