* ''Film/TheBlairWitchProject'': Heather records herself crying and talking to the camera, apologizing to her mom and her friends' mothers for starting the project and dragging them to the forest. The take shows only half her head, and especially noticeable is her nose and eyes. (According to the DVD commentary, this was accidental; the actress thought she was filming her whole face.) It's a point where she has given up on finding their way out of the woods and saving themselves.
* ''Film/ScaryMovie'' poked fun on the ''Blair Witch'' scene, complete with a runny nose that just keeps running.

A close-up shot taken from a low position upward toward the actors.

"I am so scared right now...!"

A classic example comes from ''The Blair Witch Project'', spawning several parodies. If done well, it can be very creepy, but it has been mocked mercilessly ever since.

* The intro to ''Film/FightClub'': The camera starts in the protagonist's ''brain'', zooms through his head before finally emerging through his nostril and along the barrel of a gun jammed in his mouth.



* Done easily and often in ''Series/WhoseLineIsItAnyway''. One game of ''World's Worst'' involves examples of the world's worst tv show, and Greg Proops and Drew Carey take turns to move too close to the camera, "announcing" the tv shows "You're Standing Too Close" and "What's Up My Nose".

** A particularly unpleasant one happens at the beginning of Episode 3 of "The Seeds of Doom", where Sarah and the Doctor are lying dazed on the ground following the explosion of the shack. The closeup of the Doctor's face gives us a tour of Tom Baker's nasal cavity, with polystyrene snowflakes visibly clinging to the brightly illuminated nose hairs, slap bang in the centre of the frame.

* Discussed on the DVD commentary for the ''Series/DoctorWho'' story "Robot" - Creator/TerranceDicks remarked that Creator/JonPertwee was very sensitive about his nose and refused to do low-angle shots for this reason, to which Creator/ElisabethSladen complained that she always got nostril shots because she was looking up at horrible things so often.
