Could 13 be your new lucky number?
Whether you’re a newbie or devotee, Stephen King fans are as relevant today as ever! Dish Network is on the hunt to find whoever feels like they’re the bravest fan to date. Who would have thought that your taste in, or fear of, horror films could earn you a nice lump sum of cash one day?
Since you already planned on binging scary movies this Halloween season anyway, an extra $13,000 in your pocket doesn’t seem so far fetched. All you have to do is write a 200-word explanation as to why you would ever want to put yourself through watching 13 classic Stephan King adaptations before Halloween!
The thirteen movies have been narrowed down to:
- Carrie (original or 2013 remake)
- Children of the Corn
- It (original or 2017 remake)
- The Mist
- Pet Sematary (original or 2019 remake)
- Salem’s Lot
- The Shining
Sure it may sound like fun and games now, but you won’t be laughing when you’re losing sleep over cult classics like “Carrie” or “The Shinning!”
Granted you do get chosen as USDish’s lucky candidate – you’ll have to record the number of times you jumped, cringed, or hid under the covers as well as track your heart rate during the blood-chilling scenes with the FitBit that is provided (good luck with the It remake – yikes!)
The chosen super fan will receive all thirteen movies for free as well as a ‘survival kit’ to help them get through those long, eerie nights leading up to Halloween; the kit will include a flashlight, blanket, popcorn, candy, and some Stephen King paraphernalia to set the stage for what is sure to be a terrifying experience. If you make it out alive, you’ll be paid $1,300 dollars as well as a movie theater gift card so that you can add a 14th King movie to your list considering It: Chapter 2 or Doctor Sleep are the next flicks to hit the big screen.
