Watch a Scary Movie, Get Paid $10,000

What some movie producers will do to get you to see their movie! Producers have tried all kinds of advertising to promote their movies, but this may be a first. An Indian filmmaker, Ram Gopal Varma, has just released his latest horror film, Phoonk 2. If you don't think the movie will scare you, you will be put in the movie theater all by yourself, while wired up to a heart machine, with a camera on you at all times. (You can't close your eyes.) If you are able to sit through the entire movie, you will win $10,000. Apparently, when Varma ran this same promotion with his previous movie, the contestant ran out of the theater after only 30 minutes.
