USdish.com is looking for someone willing to watch 13 movies based on King’s novels before Halloween and will give them $1,300 for the effort. With “It: Chapter 2” out now and “Doctor Sleep” hitting theaters soon, the company is wanting someone to watch the films in celebration of the returns of Pennywise and Danny Torrance.
Aside from grabbing a bucket of popcorn, turning off the lights and cuddling under a blanket, you’ll just have to tell USdish.com how your movie-viewing experience was. Did your heart race during scary scenes? Which movie was your favorite or least favorite? Did you choose to go at the challenge alone or with a friend or family member?
Think you’re right for the job? The ideal candidate has to be detail-oriented enough to track their experience, so you should be a good note-taker. You do not need a degree, but you must be 18 years or older. It’s great if you’re a horror buff, but also fine if you’re a scaredy-cat.
To apply, just tell USdish.com why you’d be perfect for the gig and what you hope to gain from the experience (aside from the cash prize, of course).
- “Carrie” (original or 2013 remake)
- “Children of the Corn”
- “It” (original or 2017 remake)
- “The Mist”
- “Pet Sematary” (original or 2019 remake)
- “Salem’s Lot”
- “The Shining”
USdish will provide the movies, so you do not need to go rent them or find them streaming somewhere. They’ll also provide a worksheet to help guide you along the way, but you’re welcome to share your own thoughts outside of what’s on the guide.
You’ll also get a survival kit with a flashlight, blanket, popcorn, candy and some King paraphernalia, plus a Fitbit to help track your heart rate. As a bonus, you’ll even get a movie theater gift card to go see either “It: Chapter 2” or “Doctor Sleep”.
The number 13 has never been so lucky! You have until Oct. 15 to tell USdish.com why you should get the job. Will you be applying?
