Corey Feldman crowdfunding project to expose Hollywood paedophiles

Corey Feldman is crowdfunding a new movie he hopes will expose sexual abusers of child performers in Hollywood, a problem he claims is widespread.

The Lost Boys and Stand By Me star alleges he himself was molested as a boy while working on movies, along with his friend and co-star Corey Haim, who died in 2010.

Feldman has launched what he's called the 'TRUTH Campaign' on Indiegogo, which aims to raise US$10 million for a documentary about his life that he hopes will end a powerful paedophile network.

"I told everybody a few days ago that I had a plan to hopefully bring to light what is happening in the world of entertainment as far as perverts and paedophiles and all the topics we've been discussing," says Feldman in a video promoting the project.

"What I am proposing is a plan that can literally change the entertainment system as we know it... I believe that I can also bring down, potentially, a pedophile ring that I have been aware of since I was a child."

Feldman has for years alleged he and Haim were abused by powerful entertainment industry figures, but refused to identify them as he feared legal ramifications - but it appears he may soon be willing to reveal them.

"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," he says.

"I'm very alone, but I need to protect myself and I need to protect my family."

As well as donations to fund the project, Feldman is asking fellow child performers to come forward with their stories of abuse.
