Given all the shocking videos that kids under 12 can come across on YouTube, it's confusing why they picked on New Line's The Nun.

The Nun is the latest horror film to be spun off from the Conjuring movies.

"The Nun" is a spinoff of "The Conjuring" movie franchise.

The move appears to have been instigated by one person's warning posted Sunday on Twitter, a post that has been retweeted more than 135,000 times since then.

You might not be able to watch the trailer for the horror movie The Nun on YouTube anymore, but the new worldwide poster is here to creep you out and tide you over in until the film hits theaters.

YouTube has had to remove a truly horrifying six second ad for upcoming horror film 'The Nun', because holy shit, it was way too scary.

Twitter user Roshan was one of those who complained that the ad did its job.

Even YouTube noticed the warning and responded to the user, confirming, "Appreciate you bringing this to our attention!"

YouTube removed the short-lived viral ad for allegedly violating its "shocking content policy", although a new version of the clip, uploaded by another user, has already racked up more than 100,000 views since hitting the site on Sunday. "This ad violates our shocking content policy and it's no longer running as an ad".

"The Nun", an offspring of "The Conjuring" series, focuses on the suicide of a nun in 1950s Romania and, according to MovieWeb, was filmed in a spooky castle in Romania.

Being frightened by a trailer should be something that a horror fan relishes in, but when you're waiting to watch a YouTube video for a good recipe it might be a little jarring.

YouTube's official policy prohibits the use of "gruesome imagery", "gratuitous bodily fluids or waste", and "promotions that are likely to shock or scare".
