For Gem State fans of famous novelist Stephen King, a contest currently underway will pay the winner $1,300 for watching 13 of his films in the coming days. With Halloween now just seven weeks away, getting that horror movie marathon going with some of King's classics is a great idea.

Who doesn't love Stephen King? I've been a fan of his movies since I was a kid. While a few film adaptations of his books have been tough to sit through due to horrific acting and the time period they were made--1992's Sleepwalkers was the worst--he wrote a few of my all-time favorite stories.

Not a single Halloween passes without my wife and I watching the films The Shining, It, and 1408, which all came from the mind of the great writer. The Shining is a top-five all-time favorite movie of mine and is a masterpiece in my opinion.

Other movies of his I've enjoyed immensely are Pet Sematary, It (the remake was better than the original), Stand By Me, and Misery. Those in southern Idaho that have Dish Network can enter to win the "Scream Job" until September 16. There's no purchase necessary to get your entry in the running.

For all the details on the 2022 "Scream Job" contest, click here. The link also includes all the movies that are on the watch list, which include Cujo, Christine, The Mist, Salem's Lot, and Doctor Sleep. Personally, I'd save The Shining for last.

Happy viewing to all the Idaho fans that enter!
