Dish is looking to hire the "perfect victim" to watch 13 movies based on scary Stephen King novels before Halloween--and will pay them $1,300 to do the job. The only requirements are that applicants are 18 years old, U.S. citizens, and are "detail-oriented enough to track their experience." The company says they want to "know everything about your experience," including your heart rate, how you felt before and after watching the movies, and if any of the films affected your sleep. The company will provide the movies, a worksheet to help guide the person through the process, a "survival kit with a flashlight, blanket, popcorn, candy, and some Stephen King paraphernalia," a Fitbit to "help you track your heart rate," and a theatre gift card to watch It: Chapter 2 or Doctor Sleep at the end of the assignment. Here are the movies the successful candidate will be asked to watch:

  1. Carrie (original or 2013 remake)
  2. Children of the Corn
  3. Christine
  4. Creepshow
  5. Cujo
  6. Dreamcatcher
  7. It (original or 2017 remake)
  8. The Mist
  9. Pet Sematary (original or 2019 remake)
  10. Salem's Lot
