Someone turned the iconic fire drill scene from The Office into a horror short, and it might give you nightmares. 

By removing the jokes, adding music from Captain America: Winter Soldier, and darkening the scene to a more ominous color scheme, Austin Spencer made paper salesman Dwight K. Schrute look like an absolute psychopath. 

(Granted, Dwight usually seemed a bit psychopathic in the show, but in a lovable way!)

I removed all the jokes from the fire drill scene from The Office and added scary music to see how much I could change the tone pic.twitter.com/pBrGNEK53e

The scene opens with Dwight typing the same thing over and over again, like Jack Torrance did in The Shining. Then, he jams all the doors, 

“People learn in lots of different ways,” he says in a sinister narration. “But experience is the best teacher.” 

As the rest of the office panics at the sight of smoke, Dwight calmly paces through the space. It’s pretty spooky.

I had to cut so much out of the intro that the pacing felt a little rushed, so I decided to add that shot to help set the stage 😬 I was also trying to allude to this moment from The Shining ⬇️ pic.twitter.com/zTaTDZzh1w

In the original version, Dwight attempts to teach his coworkers a lesson in fire safety, but it quickly descends into chaos.

As the video went viral, people took some time to pay their respects to the victims of the fire drill — cats included.

I know it’s considered “a joke” but I still wanted to see Angela’s cat fall through the ceiling.

So many lives lost in the Dundler-Mifflin fire of 2009

But not everyone could separate it from the original version. 

The camera man falling ruined it for me 😂😭

It’s not the first time someone has turned The Office into a thriller. A few years ago, another filmmaker re-edited scenes from Dwight’s beet farm into a horror trailer called My Cousin Mose.

Others wanted to see more horror versions of hilarious scenes from The Office, like when a deranged Dwight hacks the face off of a CPR dummy and wears it.

TBH, I’d watch a horror movie about Angela’s beloved cats!
