* ''Series/StargateSG1'' features such an episode, only instead of a building, they are all stuck on the Alpha Site planet and unable to leave until the murderer is found. Tensions mount between the three races present, with the leaders under a lot of pressure to keep it from turning into a shootout. Accusations are flung around and the humans are stuck in the middle. The murderer turns out to be an invisible Ashrak, but the relationship between Earth and its two allies never quite recovers.

* ''TheTwilightZone'': "The Monsters Are Due On Maple Street". A street in a small town loses all power and use of their cars. Spurred on by a young boy's claims that this is a common comic book plot, they quickly suspect each other of being aliens. As riots break out, the audience learns that, no, none of the folks on Maple Street are aliens. The whole thing was set up by alien puppetmasters outside of town to trigger the riot, who comment on how easy conquering Earth this way is. Replace "aliens" with "terrorists" and "alien puppetmasters" with "US Army researchers", and you get the version used in the 2002 remake.

* ''{{D-Tox}}'' was a film with this premise, starring Sylvester Stallone. Stallone was one of 9 cops being treated for psychological problems at a remote ranch in snowy Wyoming. However, one of the other patients was actually a serial killer who targets cops, having killed the real patient and assumed his identity. The real killer turned out to be the character who was most apparently helpful and mature (as opposed to the cowardly guy or the violent alcoholic).

* ''VisualNovel/DanganRonpa'' has an interesting example: the presence of a mole is not revealed until the fifteen students have been whittled down to [[spoiler:seven]], and the mastermind ''immediately'' reveals the mole's identity in the hope that someone will murder him/her. [[spoiler:There was also a second mole who was betrayed by the mastermind and murdered in the first chapter]].
** ''VisualNovel/SuperDanganRonpa2'' goes a step further by having the mastermind reveal ''from the start'' that one of the sixteen students is a "traitor". [[spoiler:However, this "traitor" is not a murderer but an observer sent to ''help'' the students. Furthermore, the knowledge of this "traitor"'s presence does not drive anyone to murder out of paranoia: the murderer of Chapter 5 ''claims'' to be doing it to flush out the traitor, but that turns out to be a bluff]].
