the nun promo youtube ban #horror Annabelle The Conjuring
Warner Bros. Pictures

YouTube has removed a new promo for upcoming The Conjuring spin-off The Nun after deeming it “too scary” for viewers, IndieWire reports — news that will doubtlessly render the film a must-watch for any hardcore horror fan.

The six-second advert, which sees a volume icon decreasing before the titular nun bursts from the darkness, scared the crap out of unsuspecting viewers who caught it. The creepy AF jump-scare apparently violates YouTube’s “shocking content” policy for advertisements, with the clip playing as an ad before certain videos rather than being selected by the viewer.

Watch the video, which has been reposted, below, if you dare.

The tweet below, warning about the ad, received 137,000 retweets after asking users “to save a life.”

The Nun‘s narrative follows a Vatican priest’s investigation of a young nun’s suicide in Romania. The movie is helmed by indie director Corin Hardy (The Hallow) and stars Demián Bichir and Taissa Farmiga.

Does YouTube’s move make you want to see The Nun more? Let us know your thoughts in the comments.

In other movie news, Rihanna and Donald Glover are rumored to be co-starring in a movie.
