INDIANAPOLIS — Halloween may look different this year amid the pandemic, but you'll still be able to binge-watch your favorite terrifying horror films. And this year, you could even get paid for it. 

CableTV.com and HighSpeedInternet.com are offering one lucky — or unlucky — person $1,000 to watch horror movies for 24 hours. 

Here's what the company is looking for from a successful candidate: 

  • "The sick-cessful candidate is a self-starter with an insatiable lust for nightmare fuel."
  • You're able to stay up all night 
  • You're 18 or older and legally allowed to work in the U.S. 

If that's you, then you might want to consider which 12-16 movies you'll want to stream over the 24-hour period. 

"Hop on Shudder, Prime Video, Screambox, Netflix, or any other streaming service and start dreaming of what you’ll screen if you win," the posting says. "Anything goes: gooey gore-fests, m-m-m-monster movies, folk horror, killer clowns, ghost stories, giallo films, psychological thrillers, and even awesomely bad B-flicks." 

Also be sure to live tweet the marathon. That's a requirement. 

The person chosen for the job will get $1,000, $50 Starbucks gift card and free candy.

Applicants must submit a bio convincing the company why they're the right person for the creepy job. Photos, videos and movie memorabilia are gladly accepted.
