About Polly

Polly launched HorrorBox in 2013, and is the site owner and creator. As an obsessive horror fan, she wanted to create a space where she could write about anything horror-related, including live scare attractions which were becoming a major interest for her at the time (copy & paste this link into your browser to find out more about how HorrorBox got started: https://scaretrack.podbean.com/e/scaretrack-polly-allen-interview-horrorbox-celluloid-screams/). Her favourite attractions usually have a medical theme, such as The Sanctuary, which is her all time favourite scare maze. She has also dabbled in extreme attractions, but they're not really her cup of tea! Halloween has always been a huge part of Polly’s life, ever since she was young and members of her family took turns to throw elaborate Halloween parties. Good Halloween decorations were hard to come by in the early 90s, so she had to improvise - once, she and her family dragged a dead tree into their living room, and decorated it with fairy lights and fake cobwebs. The spiders were real though. Polly is also co-director of Celluloid Screams Horror Film Festival, which takes place every October at the Showroom Cinema in Sheffield. Horror films are a big part of her life, and her all time favourite horror film is THE EXORCIST.
