Youtube turns down "The Nun" jump-scare ad

The Nun

The Nun

That's why YouTube removed an ad for the most recent horror film in New Line Cinema's Conjuring universe, The Nun.

However as an advertisement, this movie ad for "The Nun" would appear at the front of YouTube videos with no warning as to what will be shown.

YouTube took down a short jumpscare ad for The Nun after people flagged it as potentially distressing.

More sinned against than sinning - or perhaps just leery of a creepy auto-play ad that ruins that sweet and friendly Dora the Explorer clip their kid's expectantly waiting for - more than 130,000 jump scare-averse Twitter users retweeted the original complaint, which elicited this response from YouTube. If for some reason you want to experience that sensation firsthand, you can see the ad below, but we recommend avoiding it if you're prone to seizures, panic attacks, or just not keen on jump scares.




The Nun is the latest horror film to be spun off from the Conjuring movies. You can still experience it up above, though fair warning: don't watch it with headphones, otherwise you're likely to jump out of your chair.

YouTube's "shocking content policy" warns that the company may take action against content that is "violent or shocking". The film is produced by Peter Safran and James Wan. Together, they uncover the order's unholy secret. "Risking not only their lives but their faith and their very souls, they confront a malevolent force in the form of the same demonic nun that first terrorized audiences in 'the Conjuring 2,' as the abbey becomes a horrific battleground between the living and the damned".

The Nun is directed by Corin Hardy and stars Taissa Farmiga, Demian Bichir, Charlotte Hope, Ingrid Bisu, Jonas Bloquet, and Bonnie Aarons.

The Nun opens in theaters on September 7.
