You Can Now Get Paid $1,300 to Watch 13 Stephen King Movies

Now the weather is turning colder, it's time to get cosy on your couch and indulge in a movie marathon.

And by that we mean horror films, in keeping with the spooky season (hello, Halloween).

So you could be in luck as a satellite TV channel is looking for one fortunate fan to watch 13 Stephen King movies, and they'll pay you $100 a film. That works out to a tidy $1,300, and you don't even need to leave your sofa.

USDish will provide you with the unlucky number of movies, all adapted from novels by "The King of Horror."

Explaining more about who they're looking for, confirmed "no degree is necessary," saying: "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."

The films making the shortlist are:

  • 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

As well as getting paid to watch telly, you'll also get a "sway bag" worth $350, including a FitBit to measure your heart rate as you hide behind the cushions.

And after bingeing on all the movies, you'll need to fill in a report on your experience, including deciding on which was your favorite, and which you'd rather not watch again.

USDish added: "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 fear not, as they'll also give you a blanket, popcorn and some candy, along with Stephen King paraphernalia to transform your pad into a cinema-worthy venue.

To apply you need to be over 18 and a U.S. citizen, and tell them, in 200 words or less, why you're the ideal candidate for the role.

Applications close on October 8. They also shared a tip on the job ad, saying: "For bonus points, include a link to a video showing us your Halloween spirit!" To apply, click here.
