* ''Film/FogOverFrisco'': Arlene's corpse is eventually discovered in the trunk of her car. But the IntrepidReporter who discovers it doesn't tell anyone right away, which leads to Arlene's stepsister Val hurriedly driving away in the car, with Arlene's body still in the trunk. And that in turn leads to a pretty amazingly ghastly scene for 1934, in which the "rumble seat" trunk is opened, causing Arlene's body to flip up and her rigor-stiffened arms to point at the sky.

* ''VideoGame/RidesWithStrangers'': Muffled screaming and banging can be heard coming from the trunk of Father Donald's car. You can't do anything to help the poor bastard, so it can be assumed that Donald kills him offscreen after the events of the ride.

** It's possible for a PunkInTheTrunk to invoke a similar MinorCrimeRevealsMajorPlot. If the car is an older model or the interior trunk release is disabled, it may be possible to pry off the lining to get at the cords leading to one of the tail lights. Disabling one increases the chance that the car will be noticed by the police.

-->'''TripleH''': I've got a special guest gonna come out here later - but before we come to that, I'd like to give a little personal message to Kane. Kane, this is just advice, but next time you try to accost somebody by sticking them into the trunk of a car, you should try to make sure that the trunk does not have one of those child safety latches on the roof - I mean, you can just pull it and jump OUT of the trunk before the person even drives off. Just a bit of advice.

* In "Living Doll", Creator/CliffRichard sings that he's going to lock said girl in a trunk so a better-looking man can't steal her away from him. Though it could be the other kind of trunk. As Rick from ''Series/TheYoungOnes'' said while doing a cover, locking girls in trunks is politically unsound, and think of [[ComicallyMissingThePoint what it does to the elephants]].
