* The defictionalization of {{Terminator}} provides us a meta-example. [[SarcasmMode Thanks a bunch Britain.]] You just ''had'' to call your military communication satellites "Skynet", didn't you.

* ''Film/{{Oldboy}}'' is absolutely steeped in this. [[spoiler: Have you ever made a careless remark? Congratulations, that careless remark may have ruined somebody's life, and now they're devoting the rest of it to pay you back tenfold.]]

* The otherwise forgettable SylvesterStallone film D-Tox starts with his wife being murdered, more exactly ''shot in the head/eye while answering the door''. [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking With a silencer]]. In fact, most assassin/serial killer, or even home invasion works have this potential. Just imagine, you're sitting at home, every time you hear a knock, you nonchalantely go to answer a potential murdered/thief while thinking how boring your life is. And those may be your last thoughts on Earth.

* There is a French film called ''Caché'', (or ''Hidden'') which tells the story of a middle class family. So far, so cosy. Then, they start getting these creepy videos of their own house sent to their door, accompanied by some rather disturbing crayon drawings... The film's director is Michael Haneke, the same guy who gave us ''Film/FunnyGames''

** Your entire world is an illusion, your pets are holograms, and if you were to wake up from all this you would find yourself in a CrapsackWorld.

** Your entire world is an illusion, your pets are holograms, and if you were to wake up from all this you would find yourself in a CrapsackWorld. And, just to throw in a guilt complex: if you find out all of this and ''still'' prefer the Matrix [[GildedCage (and really, who wouldn't?)]], you are [[CategoryTraitor a gutless sellout of your entire species]].

* JackNicholson's Joker, though played more for comedy, is also a rich well of ParanoiaFuel, thanks in part to Tim Burton's skillful, chilling direction of the 1989 film. Just imagine you were one of the innocent Gothamites in this movie. Could you ever again see [[EnemyMime a street mime]] or [[AFeteWorseThanDeath a parade balloon]] without having a panic attack? Would you ever again be willing to apply hairspray ''and'' deodorant in one grooming sitting? And Vicki Vale arguably had it the worst of all. The Joker was ''obsessed'' with her, and was [[StalkerWithACrush willing to track her]] just about anywhere. She wasn't safe from him in any setting, no matter how secure or comforting. ''Not even her own home.''

** Worse yet - at least from a psychological/sociological point of view - when he was alive the Candyman was a black man who was attacked by a white mob, dunked in honey, stung by bees, had his hand chopped off, and finally was lynched. [[WoobieDestroyerOfWorlds Maybe he has a right to be so angry at the world?]] Your own WhiteGuilt might doom you, subconsciously hampering you from putting up a fight.

* Creator/JimHenson's ''Film/TheCube''. Yes, ''that'' [[TheMuppetShow Jim]] [[Series/SesameStreet Henson]]. ...You know what? Just watch it. Assume nothing, and enjoy the [[HappilyEverAfter happy ending]]. Oh, and have fun with the idea that reality as you experience it now may suddenly be revealed as an illusion before you go back to the debilitating chaos that is The Cube.

* Try watching ''{{Saw}}'' for the first time by yourself at night and just see if you don't race around the house, checking your closets with a blunt object in hand.
