* ''{{Saw 2}}'' has a group of apparent strangers finding themselves locked in an abandoned house, which is obviously full of Jigsaw's traps. They soon begin to learn that something links them all together...

* Before the Liam Neeson flick of the same title, a film called ''Unknown'' combined this with EasyAmnesia and ParanoiaFuel. Several men, some of them kidnappers and others, their kidnappees, wake up with no memories and find themselves locked in a warehouse, having all been overcome by an accidentally-released toxic gas. A brief phone call from the kidnappers' accomplices reveals that more thugs will arrive soon, and presumably kill the ones who aren't on their side, but none of the trapped men know if they're the culprits or the victims...

* ''Film/MurderByDeath'' is the AffectionateParody of the genre; here, the guests are thinly-disguised versions of famous fictional detectives. The trope is averted when it turns out the villain isn't really interested in killing them off, but in embarrassing them instead.

* A large part of ''UminekoNoNakuKoroNi'''s plot is based on this trope, fittingly, considering that the whole story is a WholePlotReference of the TropeNamer. Between a SuccessionCrisis and a bizarre riddle counting off the visitors' horrific deaths (most of them in [[LockedRoomMystery closed rooms]]) in a witch resurrection ceremony, the characters can't figure out whether they're being bumped off [[MaybeMagicMaybeMundane by each other or by an actual witch]]. And to add a meta-layer, you soon realize that [[MindScrew the third-person narration is often outright]] ''[[UnreliableNarrator lying]]'' (though the way it lies and what it shows often serves as a hint). Oh, and if the hero hasn't found the culprit when time runs out, [[GroundhogDayLoop the two days reset and another murder scenario starts]]. In the end, it turns out [[spoiler:that not only is the culprit among the 18 people, they want to be discovered and stopped]]. All in all, this is quite a [[ZigZaggingTrope zig-zagging]] example.
