If you love scary films, Stephen King or both, you can make a nice check from watching some movies.
USDish.com, a website for an authorized retailer of DISH Network, is taking applications for a detail-oriented watcher who can chronicle their experiences — in a vlog or on social media — watching 13 films based on Stephen King novels.
“No degree is necessary, nor will a drug test or background check be performed; however, applicants must be 18 years or older and a US citizen or permanent resident to apply,” according to the website. “Tell us why you’re the perfect victim and what you hope to gain from this experience (aside from the $1,300, of course), and this dream—or nightmare—job could be yours!”
The participant will get a flashlight, blanket, popcorn, candy, a Fitbit and some Stephen King paraphernalia, as well as a worksheet to guide them through how to chronicle their viewing experience. The watcher will also get a movie theater gift card to watch “It Chapter Two” or “Doctor Sleep.”
The participant won’t have to log their experience watching “It Chapter Two” or “Doctor Sleep,” but once they log the 13 other films, they’ll get $1,300.
“In 200 words or less, tell us why you should be tortured this way,” the site said. “Let us know how you like to celebrate the Halloween season and any other relevant information that would make you the perfect candidate.”
The list of films to watch — which will be provided by DishUS — are below. You can enter the contest at the contest webpage, and you have to watch the films by Halloween.
“Carrie” (the original or the 2013 remake)
“Children of the Corn”
“It” (the original or the 2017 remake)
“Pet Sematary” (the original or the 2019 remake)
