Can you watch all these 13 horror films?
FinanceBuzz, a financial website, recently launched a new program that might interest those horror movie fans. If you have the guts to watch horror movies non-stop and want to earn some money; the website has a special offer for you. All you have to do is sit in a chair, wear a Fitbit fitness tracker, watch 13 horror movies, and earn $1,300 once you’re chosen.
Are you up for the challenge?
Before everyone gets their pumpkin and Halloween costumes, the financial website has a challenge for you first. As mentioned on their official website, they are currently looking for a Horror Heart Rate Analyst.
What you only have to do is to watch “13 of the scariest movies ever made” and record your vitals via a FitBit fitness tracker device. Once you are done watching all movies, participants must submit their information on FinanceBuzz where you could earn $1,300 instantly.
Why are they doing it?
Who on Earth would want to spend money by looking at people’s vitals while watching horrors films?
Apparently, FinanceBuzz does. According to its press release, the challenge is not a question of whether who is the bravest person to watch all 13 movies non-stop.
The said challenge aims to answer the question of whether horror movies are scarier when it came from a high-budget production or low-budget.
“Of all the different types of movies to hit the silver screen, movies of the horror genre are the most profitable, regardless of the budget set to film them.
For a movie to make your hair stand on end and send shivers crawling up your spine, it’s not all about high-end special effects and CGI scares. More often than not, horror movies are scary because of their story… not the budget of the production studio. Some of the most spectacular slasher films and terrifying thrillers were made with chump change compared to superhero sequels and well-known franchises. In 2007 Paranormal Activity was produced with just $15,000 and racked in over $193 million dollars from the box office.
With Halloween around the corner, all streaming services and channels are going to start playing some familiar fear-inducing favorites. In honor of the upcoming spooky season, we at FinanceBuzz are dying to know whether or not high-budget horror movies deliver stronger scares than low-budget ones.”
