Scary movie buffs…this job is for you! 🤡

With Halloween right around the corner and Stephen King’s It: Chapter 2 and Doctor Sleep hitting theaters soon, Dish is looking for one brave movie fan to watch 13 horror classics. The successful candidate will be asked to track everything about their experience, including favorite and least favorite movies, who watched the movies with them, and how high their heart rate went during the most intense scenes. The reward? A whopping $1,300 cash.

This sounds like a pretty easy (but scary) way to make some quick cash! Plus, Dish is offering additional perks!

  • Free access to these movies on Dish
  • A survival kit with a flashlight, blanket, popcorn, candy, and Stephen King merchandise 🍿
  • A Fitbit to help you track your heart rate during some of the more intense scenes
  • A movie theater gift card so you can see a 14th movie on the big screen – either It: Chapter 2 or Doctor Sleep 🎬 🤡

No degree, drug test, or background check will be necessary, but applicants must be 18 years or older and a US citizen or permanent resident to apply. For more details and to view a complete list of the 13 movies in this challenge, visit usdish.com.

Sound like your dream job? You can apply online at usdish.com by October 15. You’ll have 200 words or less to state your case, but you can also upload a video showcasing your personality and your Halloween spirit.
