Stephen King

You can get paid $1,300 to watch 13 Stephen King movies

For many people in the US, September means lazy days snuggling under blankets, and endless movie nights with all the snacks to enjoy. Those who love a good horror movie will love this opportunity being provided by dish. They are going to pay one very fortunate Stephen King fan $1300 to watch 13 of his horrific movies. They are gearing up for Halloween in October, so this is the perfect time to get re-acquainted with movies like The Shining, or The Mist. 

Time for a Steven King marathon!

USDish.com is calling all horror lovers. Those who love sitting through spine-chilling scenes, or screaming when something jumps out at you on the screen. The Dish is preparing for the month of Halloween, and they want to pay one lucky horror fan to watch 13 of Stephen King’s greatest flicks. This is the third time they have offered this opportunity. The total sum they are paying is $1300, which is $100 per movie. Most people would do this without being paid, so this is an offer not many cannot refuse – unless you truly don’t like horrors.

Feeling brave?” says the advertisement on The Dish website. “How about you get cozy with Carrie or play fetch with Cujo? Maybe warm up at a safe distance from Charlie McGee’s wrathful fire or watch The Shining with a buddy so you know you’re not seeing things.”

The Dish will cover everything

To make this offer more approachable for applicants, they have stated they will cover all the costs. This means you will not have to go and purchase the films or download them from sketchy websites. Not only that, but they will send the lucky contestant a hamper filled with all the delicious treats to satisfy your sweet tooth while you binge-watch the many horrors.

The hamper, which The Dish calls a “swag bag” will be valued at $350. They refer to it as a survival kit as well, as it includes a blanket, candy, and popcorn (the essentials for movie night in the colder months). The Dish has added in some Stephen King paraphernalia to make the contestant feel even luckier. Additionally, you will find a Fitbit in your swag bag. This will be used to monitor your heart rate during the scary scenes. They want to see how many beats per minute your heart reaches.

The Dish wants a full report

In the name of horror all movies, the Dish wants the contestant to log a report on each of the Stephen King movies. So, you need to wear your Fitbit while watching and keep a pen and paper handy. Make some notes as you watch, and keep an eye on your body’s reactions. From heart rate to sweat glands, they want to know everything. Even if you had a friend watching with you for moral support.

We also want to know everything about your experience,” says the advertisement. “You will track your heart rate and jump scares. You’ll let us know who joined in on the scares with you, you’ll let us know what you thought before watching certain movies, and if your feelings changed after you completed them. You’ll even log your sleep—if you can sleep.
