** Happens again in ''WesternAnimation/ToyStory3''. The GreatEscape from the Sunnyside daycare center comes to an abrupt end when BigBad Lotso steps in, right before Andy's toys are in safe territory.

* Used to Heartbreaking effect in ''TheGreatEscape''. Hilts was inches away from safety when he got caught, and out of 76 escapees only 3 make it out of German-controlled territory - and 50 out of the other 73 are murdered in cold blood after being recaptured. Worse, this actually happened, and the Nazis had a knack for ''deliberately'' setting up this trope (see RealLife below).

* In the ''Series/AgentsOfSHIELD'' episode "The Magical Place," [[spoiler:Coulson]] manages to pick the locks on his handcuffs, take down the guards he encounters, and make it outside... where TheDragon calmly informs him that his captors have set up shop at an unused and abandoned nuclear testing site from the '40s, and that there's nothing but empty desert for miles around. [[spoiler:Coulson]] is given a few moments to let it sink in before he's knocked unconscious and dragged back inside.

* The short story "[[http://gaslight.mtroyal.ca/tortshil.htm A Torture by Hope]]" by Villiers de L'Isle-Adam is this trope meets YankTheDogsChain

[[AC:TruthInTelevision]]:
* This was a common strategy of the Nazis, when they found out that the prisoners were attempting to escape, they would show no signs of this knowledge, while secretly stationing guards at the escape point, thus luring the escapees into a false sense of security, right at the most dangerous part of the escape.
