The lighting used for this movie is low- key lighting. I feel that this would be the only approproate lighting for this type of movie.
The benefits to using low-key lighting in these type of film are very impoirtant. If you wer eto use and other type of lighting it would take away from the suspensfulness of the movie. with low-ket lighting it keeps the audience on the edge of their seats during the movie.
Low-key lighting contributes to the theme of the movie very well since the movie is a horror movie, and is meant to keep the audience on the edge of their seats and wanting them to be scared throughout the movie.
I do not think you could use any other type of lighting for horror films only because you want the set to be aas dark as it can be so it does not give away and surprises the director wants to thrwo at his or her aufdience. Any other lighting would give away the secrets of hat is to come and there would not be any surprises.
