Getting paid to do what you love, that’s the dream, isn’t it? Have you ever wanted to get paid to stay in bed and just watch movies all day? Just imagine it: watching your favorite horror flicks, posting about them on social media, then getting paid for it? If that sounds like something you could get behind, then you’ll be happy to know there’s a company called USdish who’s on the lookout for horror film buffs.
USdish announced they’re on the search for horror film fans who’d be interested in marathoning Stephen King films, for which you’ll be nicely compensated with some super cool merchandise and $1,300! The company posted on their website, “Get your popcorn ready and your coziest blanket near—USDish.com is looking for one (un)lucky fan to watch 13 movies based on Stephen King’s most chilling novels. With It: Chapter 2 and Doctor Sleep hitting theaters soon, we want to pay you $1,300 to witness 13 horror classics in preparation for Pennywise and Danny Torrance.”
While you may be wondering what the catch is, there isn’t much of a catch except that the offer is only open to US citizens 18 years and older. That isn’t bad at all. USdish’s description states, “‘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.”
So, what will you be expected to watch? Well, 13 of Stephen King’s horror films. You’ll be watching famous flicks like Carrie – remake or original, Children of the Corn, Christine, Creepshow, Cujo, Dreamcatcher, It – remake or original, The Mist, Pet Sematary – remake or original, Salem’s Lot, The Shining and Thinner. According to USdish, you will be required to monitor your heart rate throughout the films, as well as 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!” USdish said.
“Halloween is just around the corner, so it’s fitting you get cozy with Carrie or play fetch with Cujo. Maybe take Christine for a spin and see where it takes you. In the process, tell us how everything’s going. How’s your heart rate during the scary scenes? Which movie’s your favorite or least favorite? Are you watching these flicks alone, or bringing a friend along so you can have night terrors together? You tell us, we pay you $1,300. Simple! Scary, but simple!” USdish concluded on their website.
