If you missed Day of Reckoning (2016) when it first showed on Syfy back in October 2016, you can now catch it on most of the major Video on Demand providers in the United States and Canada. Written by Big Ass Spider scribe Gregory Gieras and featuring genre favorite Barbara Crampton, it is the story of an Earth where the population is still recovering from a 24-hour attack by demon-like creatures that happened 15 years previously. Now, it looks like the monsters are returning, and a family must try to survive this new invasion. It sounds as if there is a bit of 9/11 allegory mixed with a demon version of The Purge (2013), which could be interesting. Then again, from the trailer, it does look like it sports the standard Syfy Original Movie production values and lots of CGI critters.

Here are some more details regarding the story:

Fifteen years ago, the world suffered a horrific global disaster when millions of demon-like creatures ascended from the bowels of the earth, swarming the entire planet, and feasting on mankind for one full day. Now due to a lunar eclipse they have returned for 24 hours to purge the earth’s population.  One family will battle against the odds to not only save themselves but to also seal the breach.
