Corey Feldman Announces His Documentary Is Coming — For One Day Only
In October 2017, Corey Feldman stopped his musical tour with his band Corey Feldman and the Angels to launch his Truth Campaign. It was the onset of the MeToo movement and while celebrities such as Rose McGowan, Alyssa Milano, and Rosanna and Patricia Arquette were using social media to raise awareness for women who were victims of Hollywood sexual abuse, Corey Feldman used Twitter to create awareness for male victims of childhood sexual abuse. He became an ambassador for Child USA and began lobbying to overturn the statute of limitations regarding child sexual abuse cases nationwide. He also launched a Go Fund Me and IndieGoGo campaign to raise money to tell what he says is the story of his abuse, and the abuse of his former co-star Corey Haim. Feldman says that one of the things that Corey Haim wanted most of all, was for Feldman to tell his story of abuse if anything should happen to him.
Feldman is planning on doing that.
Nearly three years later, Corey Feldman announced through his social media platforms that his documentary is soon coming to YouTube. There isn't going to be a theatrical release, instead, Corey Feldman is using the novel approach of selling tickets on February 22, 2020, on his dedicated website MyTruthDoc.com for a showing that will air at 9 p.m. PT and 11 p.m. ET, on March 9, 2020. The day Corey Feldman launches his documentary is the eve of the ten-year anniversary of Corey Haim's death.

Not everyone is excited about the documentary as some feel that Corey Feldman shouldn't speak for Corey Haim. One who is against Corey discussing Corey Haim's sexual abuse is Corey's mother, Judy Haim.
Judy Haim and Corey Feldman have had a contentious relationship following Corey Haim's death. Once Corey Feldman wrote his book Coreyography and began by telling Corey Haim's story, Feldman found his friendship with Judy Haim had come to an abrupt halt.
Judy Haim has gone on record to state that she does not want Corey Feldman speaking about her son's abuse and doesn't understand why he doesn't make his documentary solely about himself and his story.

It still remains unclear whether Corey Feldman will expose the names of those he said sexually abused himself and Corey Haim. Between Corey Feldman and Judy Haim, a number of names have surfaced in regards to who the documentary may expose.
When Corey Feldman wrote his book Coreyography , he was prevented from naming his abusers due to liability issues but used pseudonyms. He also went on the Dr. Oz show where several of his alleged abusers were named.
It's unclear if Corey Feldman has plans to return to the Dr. Oz show in light of his upcoming documentary release.
