* This is pretty much the entire plot of the short film ''The Chubbchubbs''.''WesternAnimation/TheChubbChubbs''. The hero, Meeper the janitor, desperately tries to warn the patrons of the bar that the terrifying [=ChubbChubbs=] have arrived. But since he just got fired for electrocuting TheChanteuse, no one listens to him.

* JohnWoo's ''Film/TheKiller'' had this as the prelude to the [[BloodstainedGlassWindows big church shootout]] that would end the movie. [[spoiler:Sidney returns to the church with Ah Jong's money, and he's all bloody because he [[NoHoldsBarredBeatdown got the living shit kicked out of him]] by Johnny and his men, who followed Sidney to the church following his escape, and when he gets shot, he has to ask Ah Jong to finish him because he didn't save his last bullet for himself and doesn't want to die like a dog. Then all hell breaks loose]].

* ''Film/TheCabinInTheWoods'' has the bluntly named "Harbinger" ([[spoiler:real name Mordecai]]) who gives the typical warning about the area and cabin to the teens. [[spoiler:Since the movie lives, breathes, and parodies every single horror trope, this was intentional. That said, he's totally PlayedForLaughs during the infamous [[CrowningMomentOfFunny speakerphone scene]].]]
* Gaunt from ''Film/{{Oblivion 1994}}'' is notorious in-univetse for this. He has PsychicPowers that tell him when and where a death will occur and give him a compulsion to go there. He has no idea how or to whom the death will occur, so he's not in a position to really do anything about it.
