James Wan and co. really are hitting it out of the park with these horror films. The Marvel Cinematic Universe may be dominating in terms of shared universe superhero films, and that’s exactly what Wan is doing with horror. First there was The Conjuring, then there was Annabelle, and now, there is The Nun. Now, they’ve released the first official teaser trailer for the flick. Check it out above.

I have to give their marketing team a kudos for that “Make sure you watch to the end” title at the beginning. While the payoff for that was ultimately a letdown (it was just a typical jump scare you’d get in any horror film), it certainly made me want to watch until the end, and I’m sure it’ll entice many viewers who would normally have clicked away (assuming most viewers of these will be through YouTube pre-roll ads).

Below is the official synopsis for The Nun:

“Filmmaker James Wan, director of the record-setting horror hits The Conjuring and The Conjuring 2, explores another dark corner of that universe with The Nun. Directed by Corin Hardy (The Hallow), the new fright-fest is produced by Wan and by Peter Safran, who has produced all the films in The Conjuring franchise.

When a young nun at a cloistered abbey in Romania takes her own life, a priest with a haunted past and a novitiate on the threshold of her final vows are sent by the Vatican to investigate. 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.”
