USDish.com is looking for one brave individual to participate in their Stephen King Scream Job: Chapter 2! They’ll pay someone $1,300 to watch the most chilling 13 Stephen King films—to be completed by Halloween!
Applications will be accepted now until October 8, 2021 at 5 PM MT. Visit their official page for the application form here.
In 2019, when USDish.com first launched this campaign, they received over 500,000 applications—and the winner, Dr. Anthony Tobia, found that It was the scariest Stephen King movie followed by The Shining. Now, they want to know if (in 2021) those movies are still the scariest by choosing another fearless subject!
They’re giving the winner the latest Fitbit to help monitor their heart rate during the movies, and during their sleep, because we also want to know: which Stephen King movie causes the most nightmares? Whoever wins this scream job will not only get $1,300 to make up for all the nightmares, but will also receive a swag bag valued at $350 which will include Stephen King paraphernalia, access to all 13 movies, and the latest Fitbit.

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!
