There's a new dream — or nightmare, depending on who you ask — job out there, just in time for Halloween.

USDish opened a contest recently for one lucky horror fan to earn $1,300 to binge-watch 13 classic horror films adapted from Stephen King novels.

To secure the prize winnings, the binge-watcher will be asked to complete guided worksheets about their experience, including documenting their feelings before and after the movies, naming favorites, keeping a sleep log and noting whether they were joined by any other viewers. They'll also be encouraged to promote the experience on social media.

The winner will be equipped with a "survival kit" consisting of a flashlight, blanket, popcorn, candy and Stephen King-related merch, as well as a Fitbit to track their heart rate during specific jump scares throughout the movie marathon.

The movie lineup includes "Carrie" (the original or the 2013 remake), "Children of the Corn," "Christine," "Creepshow," "Cujo," "Dreamcatcher," "It" (the original or the 2017 remake), "The Mist," "Pet Sematary" (original or 2019 remake), "Salem's Lot," "The Shining," "Thinner" and "Misery."

The winner, selected at random, will be provided the selected titles.

The contest winner will also receive a movie theater gift card to add a 14th title to the list: either "It: Chapter 2," which had the second-highest horror movie opening earlier in September, or "Doctor Sleep," the latest Stephen King movie adaptation out in theaters Nov. 8. Logging the experience for this final scare isn't required.

Interested horror buffs can apply online. The process includes submitting a 200-word entry about how they celebrate Halloween and any other information as to why you're up to the task.

The deadline to enter is Tuesday, Oct. 15 at 5 p.m. MST.
