Can you project light in a circular shape (not spherical)?

This is kind of hard to explain, but I will try.

I have an object coming down a “hallway.” To help with depth perception, I thought it’d be nice to have the object project a light in circular shape, not in a sphere (point light). The best example I can think of is the Laser Room in the first Resident Evil movie, but I only want the light to project on the walls.

Thanks in advance.

have you tried a spotlight?
