Getting paid to be scared, what a concept!
How would you like to watch horror films – and get paid for it? A finance company is going to fork over $1,300 to someone to watch 13 scary movies in October, to find out whether the size of a movie’s budget impacts its effectiveness. FinanceBuzz says it is looking to hire someone to be a “Horror Movie Heart Rate Analyst”. The person will watch 13 of the scariest movies ever made while monitoring their heart rate using Fitbit. What movies are on the bill? The Horror Movie Heart Rate Analyst is required to watch the following films between October 9-18: “Saw”, “Amityville Horror”, “A Quiet Place”, “A Quiet Place Part 2’, “Candyman”, “Insidious”, “The Blair Witch Project”, “Sinister”, “Get Out”, “The Purge”, “Halloween (2018)”, “Paranormal Activity” and “Annabelle”. To apply, you need to fill out a form online by Sept. 26 and tell the company why you’re the best person for the job. FinanceBuzz will pick a winner by October 1.
