When it comes to Stephen King stories, I've always enjoyed the books more than the films. The movies are fun, but there is just so much more detail in the books that it makes it hard to cram all of the story details into the allotted movie time. I've read just about everything King has published and own hardcovers of most of his books.

That said, I heard about this contest from USDish where they are giving one lucky fan the chance to win $1300 if they binge watch thirteen Stephen King movies.  Do you think you could handle it?  I don't scare to easily at horror movies. Occasionally I'll get startled during a "jump scare" scene, but other than that I do a pretty good job of keeping fiction and reality separated in my brain. Having nightmares after watching scary stuff never happens for me.

If you are selected to participate in the contest, the creators will give you an accessory pack of items to enhance your experience, including: a Fitbit to track your heart rate, a flashlight, movie snacks, a blanket and some other fun stuff. Out of the 13 Stephen King movies you'll have to watch if you win, which one is your favorite?
