Dish will Pay Someone $1300 to Watch 13 Stephen King Horror Movies





If you’re a thrill-seeking, horror movie-loving person and think you’ve got nerves of steel, keep reading because we may have found the dream job for you. Dish is looking for the biggest horror movie fan to watch 13 classic Stephen King titles by Halloween and earn $1300 while doing it.

To enter, all you need to do is tell Dish why you’re the perfect candidate in less than 200 words. You can boost your entry with a video of why this is your dream gig.

The (un)lucky winner will need to watch all 13 movies provided by Dish, as well as fill out a detailed worksheet while you do. The worksheet will track everything about your experience from your heart rate, your thoughts before and after, who you watched with, and more. You’ll even need to log your sleep if you got any, that is.

To help equip you for watching, Dish will give you a survival kit with a blanket, popcorn, candy, and some Stephen King paraphernalia to set the stage for what is sure to be a terrifying experience. They’ll also provide a Fitbit to help you track your heart rate during some of the more intense scenes.

Once you watch all 13 movies and log your report, you’ll get paid $1,300 to spend it how you want.

Here’s the list of movies the winner will be watching:

  • Carrie (original or 2013 remake)
  • Children of the Corn
  • Christine
  • Creepshow
  • Cujo
  • It (original or 2017 remake)
  • It: Chapter Two
  • Misery
  • The Mist
  • Pet Sematary (original or 2019 remake)
  • Salem’s Lot
  • The Shining
  • Doctor Sleep

If this sounds right up your (haunted) alley, you can apply here before October 8th, 2021 at 5 PM MT to be considered. Dish received more than 500,000 applications the first time they ran this campaign in 2019, so be sure your application video stands out!
