. . . . . You might try using flashlights and candles?
It seems to me that nearly all Hollywood spook films which used ” practical ” lighting always depended on diffused fillthat appeared to be reflections from the flashlights or candles. The diffused fill will have to be bluish gelled and the overall light levelmust be high enough to just barelymake out room reatures. Key lighting from candles or flashlights can be delicately reinforced with flashlights like the MagLight which can be adjusted from spot to flood. Or maybe yertrying for the classic “X-Files ” look of Halogen lantern beams penetrating aslightly foggy environment??
