Long Overdue Honor Coming To Two Of The Genres Biggest Names

From the “How in the hell are these two icons, not already a part of this club” file comes today’s news that both John Carpenter and Robert Englund will finally be getting the honor of having their name stepped on by hundreds of thousands of people a year as they are bestowed a spot on the Hollywood Walk Of Fame!

All kidding aside – how cool is it that these two horror heavy hitters will be included in the prestigious club of entertainment icons. The class of 2025 was announced today – almost three dozen names in total and it’s great to see horror well represented in the mix.

I’m not going to bother listing all the reasons and accolades of why this honor is so well deserved. If you don’t know why – you’re hanging around the wrong site.

Did a little research to find out when the honors normally take place – turns out that those chosen have up to two years to decide when they’ll have the ceremonial unveiling of the star and do that whole handprint thing. So – when their respective camps decide – we’ll let you know.
