Sept. 18 (UPI) — A Utah-based company is celebrating the impending arrival of Halloween by offering up a horror fan’s dream job: Watching 13 movies based on Stephen King stories and documenting the experience.
USDish.com is accepting applications for the temporary position, which requires the winning candidate to screen all 13 movies before Halloween and take steps including monitoring their heart rate during scary scenes and writing about their feelings on each film.
The company chose 13 films, but it will be up to the selected person to decide whether to watch originals or remakes in cases where more than one adaptation has been produced.
The chosen movies are “Carrie,” “Children of the Corn,” “Christine,” “Creepshow,” “Cujo,” “Dreamcatcher,” “It,” “The Mist,” “Pet Sematary,” “Salem’s Lot,” “The Shining” and “Thinner.”
The winner will be paid $1,300 and will also receive a flashlight, blanket, popcorn, candy and a Stephen King prize package.
Applications are being accepted on the company’s website through Oct. 15.
