TDD = Too Damn Dark!
Even if the scene is of a laundry room with the lights out, the base light levels throughout the scene must be bright enough to adequately illuminate all of it, while still giving opportunity for visual drama.
The composition should probably also be tightened, and the key-lighting on the monster reconsidered, because the first thing that our attention must be drawn to is the villain, not the little boy.
Holding my cropping-tools to image #1, I find that I can cut-away almost everything to the right of the dryer and to the left of the door. [i](Eliminate that white whatever-it-is thing on the floor, which looks like a hole in the floor. Being light, it draws the eye away from where it should be going.) Key lighting – why not have some red light be coming from inside the dryer? – now makes the monster the star of the show. The use of a “zoom lens” (large f-stop) will exaggerate the distance to the retreating little boy while making the goon that much more imposing and threatening. Experiment with a camera-on-the-floor-looking-up POV. Although the goon’s reflection in the door is an interesting effect, I have mixed feelings about it.
