The Orlok Awards were an annual poll done on the IMDb horror boards where Top 10 horror lists for every year were tabulated from Top 5 lists submitted by users. These began in the early 2000s and were a yearly ritual for much of the IMDb horror board community for over a decade. After the original Orlok host / tabulator vanished, another regular stepped in to revive them for one year in 2015. Seeing how such a big undertaking takes time, I was still posting the results here going into 2016. About a year later (February 2017), IMDb - who were bought out by Amazon - made the decision to shut down all of their boards. Even before this announcement, I'd offered to host and preserve the results here, and was planning on doing the same for any subsequent Orloks or other IMDb polls which, of course, never happened due to the shutdown.
Regardless, these 2015 results end up providing a good and thorough list of recommendations from a wide variety of people so they'll always be worth taking a look at... even if I don't agree with some of the end results! Each link provides complete results right down to how many votes each title, even ones that didn't make the Top 10, received. At the end there's a Winner's Circle which lists all of the winner from each consecutive year.
