* The trash compactor scene in ''[[Film/ANewHope Star Wars: A New Hope]]'' is both a standout depiction of this trope but also a ShoutOut to the [[FilmSerial cliffhanger serials]] that Creator/GeorgeLucas would watch as a kid, which very much inspired a lot of the story-telling in the original trilogy. It's also the inspiration for this trope's redirect, TrashCompactorScenario. The ''Star Wars Musical'' even has a whole song about this scene called "[[http://www.infauxmedia.com/the_walls_are_closing_in.htm The Walls are Closing In]]".

* Was invoked in ''Film/SawV''. [[spoiler: Not only does Strahm try and fail to escape by climbing up to the ceiling, but the scene rather graphically shows the perils of trying to "brace yourself" to stop the walls as the bones splinter out of his limbs. In ''Film/SawVI'', Hoffman retracts the walls and looks over what's left of Strahm. It's really not a pretty sight. WordOfGod stated that, when they made the trap, they made it with showing just how graphic it could ''really'' get.]]
