What’s your favorite scary movie? Horror film fanatics have been asked this simple question for years, sometimes even in the creepy Ghostface voice. The question proves challenging for the true lovers of horror who have multiple favorites, and Sher Toor is clearly a true lover of the genre. In 2017, Toor created a platform called SCARYFLIX in order to serve a number of purposes which all appeal to fans of horror. SCARYFLIX aggregates numerous chilling scenes from horror movies to solely provide viewers with the creepy parts. The SCARYFLIX YouTube channel is extremely beneficial for folks who love horror films but only want to revisit the climactic portions of the films they enjoy. The SCARYFLIX Instagram page, on the other hand, is much more engaging as it questions its audience and forces the audience to address its fears. Toor often uses his platform to ask followers questions such as “which horror film ruined your childhood?” or “was R.L. Stine’s Goosebumps series more traumatizing than Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark?” Evidently, SCARYFLIX caters to more than just films and instead encompasses anything related to horror.
Sher Toor explains what motivated him to create the SCARYFLIX platform. Toor was actually a close friend of the late Lee “Q” O’Denat, who was the founder and CEO of WorldStarHipHop (WSHH). Toor worked with O’Denat by handling content creation for WSHH. He also started filming vlogs for WSHH. Remaining a close friend and business associate with O’Denat pushed Toor into the realm of hip hop as he was introduced to numerous artists and executives. Toor even garnered the opportunity to film for Birdman when Birdman was promoting “Rich Gang.”
Toor explains that he was always particularly fond of the horror genre, and he intended to make a movie partnering with O’Denat. The death of O’Denat unfortunately caused Toor to reprioritize his career and separate himself from WSHH. Toor was still left inspired by O’Denat and decided to start an Instagram page for fun aggregating horror scenes in his spare time. After a few months, Toor hit an untapped niche on Instagram and pulled in thousands of hardcore horror followers. Toor now uses SCARYFLIX to attract individuals who have a similar appreciation for the niche genre as he does. SCARYFLIX is necessary as it provides the best horror entertainment to fans over the world. Some of the content posted on SCARYFLIX Instagram page has been reposted by both social media influencers and celebrities, and the page has now amassed over 295,000 followers. Be sure to grab some SCARYFLIX merchandise if you are a true horror fanatic, and follow @scaryflix on Instagram.
