Riot Headline 10 Exciting Books to Read this Summer

3rd Annual Stephen King View-a-Thon Offering $1,300 to Watch 13 Movies



Always books. Never boring.

For the third year in a row, is looking for a fan to watch 13 movies based on Stephen King novels. If selected, the fan will receive $1,300, a swag bag with a $350 value—which includes a FitBit—and tickets for the 2023 premier of Salem’s Lot. The only thing asks in return is for the viewer to document their experiences watching each movie—noting what made them jump, which villains they preferred, etc. They even provide a worksheet to record thoughts and a guide for watching the movies.

Interested viewers can fill out the application on the USDish site, which includes a prompt asking what makes them the perfect candidate, to be answered in 200 words or fewer. Applicants who submit an optional video, like last year’s winner Ashley LaBossiere, will be more likely to be selected.

Applications are open now until September 16, 2022.

The movies to be watched 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
  • The Shining
