If you're the kind of person that loves nothing more than being too scared to turn the lights off in your own home, then boy do we have an opportunity for you.

One lucky fear fiend has the chance to watch 13 horror movies based on classic novels by Stephen King - and receive $1,300 (£1,106) in return.

USDish.com is looking for a 'detail-oriented' individual to watch the films and take notes along the way, monitoring their heart rate, favourite scenes and how well they slept.

On top of the $1,300 payment, the winner will be given a goody bag worth $350 (£297), containing a Fitbit and a survival kit, comprised of a blanket, popcorn, candy, and some Stephen King paraphernalia.

The films you'll be paid to watch are as follows: Carrie (original or 2013 remake), Christine, Creepshow, Cujo, Doctor Sleep, Firestarter (original or 2022 remake), It (original or 2017 remake), It Chapter Two, Misery, The Mist, Pet Sematary (original or 2019 remake), Salem's Lot and The Shining.

Outlining what exactly you're expected do while watching the classics, USDish.com said: "We want to know everything about your experience.

"You will track your heart rate and jump scares. You'll let us know who joined in on the scares with you. You'll let us know what you thought before watching certain movies, and if your feelings changed after you completed them. You'll even log your sleep - if you can sleep.

"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!

"It's simple to watch wherever you are, just consult our guide to watching Stephen King to get started down the path of horror."

To be eligible to apply you need to be 18 or over and a US citizen or permanent resident.

So, beyond that, who is the retailer looking for? Well, just about anyone.

The application reads: "Movie buff? Scaredy cat? Adrenaline junkie? All of the above? This job is not for the faint of heart, but it could be for you.

"The ideal candidate has to be detail-oriented enough to track their experience. They could even share their scares on social media and vlog every time they jump out of their seats."

To apply, you just need to explain in 200 words why you would make the ideal candidate for 'the scariest social experiment of the season'.

You can apply here.
