  1. I had to look up the meaning of "philophobia" and it means the fear of falling in love. So that should be an intriguing movie.

  2. I'd probably like Sweet Dreams. I'm intrigued on how the petty criminal's spree ends.

  3. You had me on Philophobia up until the end with "until one of them loses their life". I'm on the hunt for happy endings and fairy tales this month!
