NICOLE EGGERT IS BLOWN AWAY WITH COREY HAIM

year: 1993 cast: Nicole Eggert, Corey Haim, Corey Feldman, Kathleen Robertson rating: **1/2
Let’s coin a new cinematic term… Corey Noir… Or perhaps, Film Corey… That’s right, the Coreys – Haim and Feldman – starred in a 1993 Neo Noir thriller, but the boys aren't what BLOWN AWAY is remembered for…

Nicole Eggert stars as a teenage femme fatalle, Megan, with a rich and overprotective father who might’ve had something to do with her mother’s death – opening the movie with a car explosion aptly befitting the title...
"Go back to Steve Sanders, he was more your type anyway."
Corey Haim is Rich… No he’s not worth a lot of money like Megan… His name’s Rich and he has a half-brother, Wes... the other Corey, resembling a scruffy grunge musician on sabbatical... who hangs around a nightclub where Rich works, owned by Megan’s hardboiled father…

Jean LeClerc is about as tough as the movie gets, aesthetically. Chiseled and mean with world-weary prowess, the sinister Sy is a palpable threat to our youthful hero…
"I'm smokin' hot, like, totally."
Every time after Rich beds down Megan during full frontal over-the-top sex scenes that provided “controversy” upon the film’s release… straight-to-video, cable or otherwise… Sy shows up and can’t leave his daughter alone. This makes Megan want to erase daddy, for good...

The Noir template includes the seductive siren tempting her lovestruck (and ultimately falsely accused) pawn to pull off dirty deeds… The heartbroken damsel (Kathleen Robertson) who yearns for what she cannot have… A grumbling/befuddled cop chasing clues... And a wild card character ultimately wielding the smoking gun…
"Excuse me, sir, do you have a light... And my homework?"
All that’s missing is a fully realized script, way more fun in the first half than second, and most importantly, grownup actors to fit the situation at hand... Yet surprisingly enough, these kids, especially the sultry and seductive Eggert, do alright…

Sure you’ll be howling at the contrived, cornball dialogue, or when Corey Haim, built like a No. 2 Pencil, beats up a muscular dude inside a neon-lit barroom, but in the movies, anything, and everything, is possible…
"Alright, so it's no LOST BOYS but it definitely puts DREAM A LITTLE DREAM to shame."
"This is a controversial breakthrough, so I don't want Charles, or David Hasselhoff, in charge of me..."
"My looks and life are perfect, right down to the white picket fence."
"Why, in most of these Corey flicks, does Haim get the better role?"
"One of these guns is a hairdryer... Wanna test 'em out?"
