One company is asking a brave movie fan to watch "13 of the scariest movies ever made" this Halloween in order to determine if a film's budget impacts its fear factor. Financebuzz, a financial independence website, is searching for someone to be a "horror movie heart rate analyst."
The gig, which pays $1,300, requires the analyst to wear a FitBit to monitor their heart rate while watching 13 horror movies, from blockbusters to indie projects. "You'll help us discover whether or not a movie's budget impacts just how dread-inducing it can be," the company wrote. The list of spooky films is: 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. Financebuzz will provide their analyst with a FitBit, plus the $1,300 and a $50 gift card to cover movie rental costs.
