A company is looking for a major horror fan who will sit and binge through Stephen King's hits and pay them in return.
Ever wished you could get paid to do what you do best aka watch horror movies and post about them on social media? Now you can! A company called USdish is looking for a horror buff who doesn't mind having a Stephen King movie marathon and if that's you, you can easily get some super cool stuff including $1,300!
What's the catch? It is open to US citizens only and you have to be 18+, that's all! 'Movie buff? Scaredy cat? Adrenaline junkie? All of the above? This job is not for the faint of heart, but it could be for you. The ideal candidate has to be detail-oriented enough to track their experience. They could even share their scares on social media and vlog every time they jump out of their seats. 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. 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!' reads the description.
What will you watch? 13 of best Stephen King horror movies: Carrie (original or 2013 remake), Children of the Corn, Christine, Creepshow, Cujo, Dreamcatcher, It (original or remake), The Mist, Pet Sematary (original or 2019 remake), Salem's Lot, The Shining and Thinner. As you watch, you are supposed to monitor your heart rate and take notes. 'We also want to know everything about your experience. 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. We want to know all this and more! We’ll provide a worksheet to help guide you along the way, but you’re not limited to what we give you—feel free to share your thoughts, like a journal, and give us all the frightening deets!'
And what do you get for doing what you usually do? A sum of $1,300 and more! 'Don’t worry about tracking down these horror flicks; watch all 13 movies on us! To help equip you for watching, we’ll give you a survival kit with a flashlight, blanket, popcorn, candy, and some Stephen King paraphernalia to set the stage for what is sure to be a terrifying experience. We’ll provide a Fitbit to help you track your heart rate during some of the more intense scenes. Think “you’ll float too” or the prom scene in Carrie. We’ll also give you a movie theater gift card to add a 14th movie to your list, either It: Chapter 2 or Doctor Sleep, whichever nightmare you prefer (you won’t be required to report on this specific movie experience—just try to enjoy the show). Once you watch all 13 movies and log your report, we’ll pay you $1,300! Spend it how you want. May we recommend a relaxing spa trip?' the details read.
