Mx Player, an ad-supported free streaming app that launched in North America last week, apparently knows what you’re craving right now: stories about triumphing over dire biological threats. 

Pandemic, a 2007 Hallmark Channel mini-series focused on a bird flu that strikes Los Angeles, is one of the app’s highlighted titles right now. The two-part, three-hour title stars Tiffany Thiesen, Faye Dunaway, French Stewart, Eric Roberts, Bruce Boxleitner and Vincent Spano. 

MX Player also features a “We Will Survive” collection with such movies as:

Isolation, a 2005 horror flick, about five people quarantined on an Irish farm when a generic experiment goes wrong.    

Parts Per Billion, a 2014 sci-fi drama with the interwoven stories of three couples trying to find meaning in their lives amidst a biological disaster. The cast includes Frank Langella, Gena Rowlands, Rosario Dawson, Josh Hartnett and Alexis Bledel.      

Embers, a 2015 sci-fi drama with five interwoven stories set after a global neurological epidemic. Starring Jason Ritter.     

Antisocial, a 2013 Canadian horror flick about five friends celebrating New Year’s Eve while an epidemic erupts outside.
