Movies set predominantly on a single spaceship?

Please come up with any movie you can think of that is set predominantly on a single spaceship. I'm most thinking of thrillers, in which there are a handful of characters who are picked off one-by-one by some outside intruder, in which the contained setting of the ship functions like a haunted house that the protagonists cannot leave (or, alternatively, the very limited resources such as oxygen or water or time-before-destruction are the characters' main antagonist), but please come up with any such movie you can think of.
(It need not be horror, it need not be a thriller, and, really, it need not even be a spaceship -- bonus points for similar movies set on an airplane or a boat or what-have-you. Hell -- it need not even be a movie! If you know of a book or play, let me know!)
Movies like Sunshine, Solaris, Event Horizon, or Apollo 13 are what I'm looking for. Movies in which a hefty or important section are set just on a single space ship, such as 2001: A Space Odyssey or Alien, are also appreciated.
