If you've already blown through lists of the best horror movies ever made, it's time to get more specific with your Halloween binge-watching. This year, USDish is challenging one brave soul to watch 13 movies based on classic Stephen King works by October 31—and the lucky viewer will receive $1300 for their fortitude.

如果你已经看过最佳恐怖电影榜单上的不少电影,今年万圣节是时候有针对性地刷电影了。今年胆子大的人可以接受USDish网站的挑战,在10月31日前看完13部斯蒂芬·金经典小说改编成的电影,完成挑战的勇敢观影者将有幸获得1300美元(约合人民币9217元)的嘉奖。

fortitude['fɔːtɪtjuːd]: n. 刚毅;不屈不挠;勇气

 

Forty-three films have been adapted from Stephen King's novels, novellas, and short stories, including IT Chapter Two and Doctor Sleep in 2019. USDish.com has narrowed its viewing list down to King's most famous films like Children of the Corn (1984), Carrie (the 2013 remake or the 1976 original), Misery (1990), and Pet Sematary (the 2019 remake or the 1989 original).

斯蒂芬·金的小说和中短篇故事已经被改编成了43部电影,包括2019年上映的《小丑回魂2》和《睡梦医生》。USDish网站已经将范围缩小到斯蒂芬·金最著名的13部电影,包括《玉米田的小孩》(1984年)、《魔女嘉莉》(2013年翻拍版或1976年原版)、《危情十日》(1990年)和《宠物坟场》(2019年翻拍版或1989年原版)。

The candidate chosen for the challenge will receive a survival kit complete with a blanket, flashlight, candy, popcorn, and Stephen King swag. USDish will also send them a Fitbit they can use to track their pulse while watching some of the most heart-pounding scenes in cinema. All 13 movies are available to watch on Dish, and if the viewer wants to extend their movie marathon, they can use a complimentary gift card to see IT Chapter 2 or Doctor Sleep in theaters.

被选中参加挑战的人将收到一套“生存装备”,有毯子、手电筒、糖果、爆米花和斯蒂芬·金潮包。USDish网站还会给他们发一个能够检测脉搏的Fitbit手环,让他们在看恐怖电影的时候佩戴。所有13部电影都可以在Dish网站上观看,如果观影者还想扩大自己的电影马拉松范围,他们可以用赠送的礼品卡在影院看《小丑回魂2》或《睡梦医生》。

After making it through the list and logging their experience, the winner will receive a $1300 cash prize. They can use that money to buy all the Stephen King movies that weren't included in the challenge—or maybe take a relaxing trip to some place.

在打卡完列表上的所有电影后,赢家将能获得1300美元的现金奖励。他们可以用这笔钱去看挑战范围之外的斯蒂芬·金的所有电影,也可以来一场放松身心的旅游。

To apply for the dream (or nightmare) gig, fill out the form on the USDish.com website with your personal information, viewing habits, and a short essay explaining why you should get the job. There's also an option to upload a video pitching yourself as the perfect victim.

有意申请这个“理想(噩梦)体验”的人可以在USDish网站上的表格填写个人信息、观影习惯,并写一篇短文解释你获得这份工作的理由。你还可以上传一个视频,给自己拉分。

Whether or not you get paid to do it, you can organize a Stephen King binge-watching session of your own.

话说回来,无论你能否得到奖金,你都可以自己把斯蒂芬·金的电影刷个够。
