YouTube Removes The Nun Trailer Because Of ‘Shocking Content’

YouTube has reportedly pulled down the trailer of the new horror movie ‘The Nun’ after viewers found it to be too frightening. ‘The Nun’ is the fifth installment from “The Conjuring” franchise.

For those unaware, The Nun is an upcoming American gothic supernatural horror film that is a direct spin-off of 2016’s The Conjuring 2 and is directed by Corin Hardy (The Hallow). The story is set in 1952, where a Catholic priest and a novice are sent by the Vatican to investigate the mysterious suicide of a nun at an abbey in Romania.

On August 12, 2018, a six-second trailer for the new film was released on YouTube. The trailer first shows the screen with its sound being turned down. A few seconds later, horrifying image of “The Nun” character suddenly pops up along with some terrifying sound effects and a blood-curdling scream that may make anyone jump from their chair.

Some even described the ad as deceptive with no prior warning regarding its content, which may be scary for younger audiences or heart patients as well. What makes it worse is that the six-second trailer ad is not skip-able.

The visuals were so spooky that a user took to Twitter to share her horrifying experience. She also complained about its potentially disturbing content.

After the tweet went viral and garnered more than 100,000 retweets, the YouTube team responded saying that the ad violated their shocking agent policy:


The Verdict:-

Indeed,¬†the YouTube’s policy¬†does note that it has the right to refuse ‚Äúpromotions containing violent language, gruesome or disgusting imagery, or graphic images or accounts of physical trauma, or promotions that are likely to shock or scare,‚Äù ensuring that they ‚Äústrive to avoid offending or shocking users with ads, websites, or apps that are inappropriate for our ad network.‚Äù However, this normally refers to real footage rather than adverts.

The Nun is expected to hit the theaters on September 7, 2018. Are you ready to get spooked?
