EX-CHILD ACTOR COUNTS HIS LOSSES

In 1987, Corey Haim was a successful child actor battling vampires in "The Lost Boys." In 1997, he's battling creditors.

Haim, 25, filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection Thursday, listing debts including nearly $104,000 to the Internal Revenue Service, $100,000 in state taxes and a variety of medical expenses.

The petition says Haim has few assets, including a 1987 BMW, $100 in cash, $750 worth of clothing and $7,500 in residuals and royalty rights. He also listed a $31,000 pension plan.

Haim, a Toronto-born actor who got his start in TV commercials at age 10, made several feature films, including "The Lost Boys" in 1987 after getting good reviews playing Liza Minnelli's dying son in the 1985 made-for-TV movie "A Time to Live."
