A new ad for The Nun has pissed off some folks, and others laughing as it utilizes a classic jump scare technique to fool those on the platform. As you can see from the thumbnail below, the ad starts with a black screen, and the volume indicator on the computer going wild. Keep in mind, this isn’t your actual volume being manipulated, but by the time you figure that out, you’ll be startled by an incredibly loud noise and The Nun’s face!
It was jarring for me and I even knew it was coming, although I’m not sure we can fault a horror film for scaring people with its marketing. That said, I know some people who want no part of this film, and would be furious to see an advertisement for it so suddenly. Take a look at the video below (via Slashfilm) and let us know what do you think about it.
