* ''Film/{{Strike}}'': An unusual use of this effect occurs when a spy is shown running down a sidewalk, with the left side of the screen simply blacked out, like an unfinished wipe. The wipe is finally completed, revealing the men who are chasing him in the left side of the frame.

* Made famous by ''Film/{{Halloween 1978}}'': Throughout the first half of the movie, [[JamieLeeCurtis Laurie]] is repeatedly framed in this fashion, to suggest to the viewer that someone is about to fill the empty space. Towards the end, the setup is finally paid off when Michael Myers emerges from the closet to attack her.

* ''Film/{{Clue}}'' has a scene where Miss Scarlet, left alone in the ballroom, nervously checks to see if the mystery killer is [[CurtainCamouflage hiding behind the curtains]]. This is made even creepier by the brief tracking shot over her shoulder, which upon first viewing lends the sensation that we're about to see someone come up behind her.
