* Some of [[MatthewReilly Matthew Reilly's]] works have this. ''Contest'', ''IceStation'', ''Area 7'', ''Army of Thieves''...one would think he uses this trope so as to help concentrate the [[StuffBlowingUp explosions and other demolition]]. The protagonist of his short story "The Dead Prince" invokes this trope so as to prevent the culprit from getting away.

** In one particular Rory/Amy era episode, there's ''two'' closed circles. One is entirely ''within'' the Tardis (though the other eschews it, for one traditionally nebulous reason or another). Only the antagnoist has control over travel between the two. Oh, and one of them is imaginary, apparently. [[spoiler: What's real is a feature of the eventually resolved plot twist(s), of course.]]

** {{Lampshade|Hanging}}d during the Island mystery . Itsuki even uses what might be the common name for describing it: a Closed Circle. Ultimately, [[spoiler:it turns out to have been an invoked trope.]]

Added DiffLines:

** ''VideoGame/SilentHills'': Other than the starting room and a mid-game break, [[spoiler:you spend the whole game wandering a very creepy hallway, which always loops back to start it all over again when you try to leave.]] Granted, word at the time was this wasn't indicative of what the full game was going to entail, but we'll never know since the whole thing was cancelled.

** This short was remade 15 years later as ''Film/TheThreeStooges'' short "If A Body Meets A Body". It follows the plot for the most part. In fact, the police detective is even played by the same actor, Fred Kelsey.

** "Friday the 13th 1901" starts as a "hen party" (a batchelorette party) on an island over a weekend. The boatman isn't scheduled to return for several days, the only boat on the island is found to have a gaping hole in it, and the period setting means there's no communications technology. Thus Drs Ogden and Grace have to take the lead in solving the problem of the ax-wielding killer.

* ''Christopher Manson's MAZE'' has two. The first is a network of menacing rooms that lead you around in circles with only one way out. The second is [[{{Hell}}, where you end up when you take that one way out]].
