Dish Wants To Pay You $1,300 For Watching 13 Stephen King Films Before Halloween

With the haunted Halloween season almost upon us, its time for many horror fans to check out some of their favorite horror entries. Many of those are likely to be adaptations of Stephen King, with the horror writer becoming an icon in the genre with book to film adaptations like It and The Shining. To celebrate the Halloween series, Dish is looking to reward one person for being the ultimate Stephen King fan.

In a new contest, Dish will pay $1,300 dollars to a chosen fan that watches 13 King adaptations before Halloween, with their heart rate being tracked along the way via Fitbit. Check out some of the other rules and regulations that Dish has shared for the contest:

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!

Along with that, here’s the list of 13 films that are to be featured:

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

For any film fan, its a dream to be paid for binging some of King’s finest work on the big screen, as well as a smart business move on Dish’s part to promote their Halloween line-up.
