Chamber Pieces: A Limited Cast, Time & Space

"A small number of characters interacting over a short period of time in a limited environment."

While small casts and a very limited location is significant, the timeframe in which events happen is also very key here. This factor eliminates a number of films (e.g. The Shining) which might spring to mind.

Suggestions and recommendations welcome, as ever :)
