Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!
In this scene shadows are heavily used, and they seem to represent terror and evil. It seems like the raptors are always in shadows regardless of where they go. When the children get in and out of the shadows, the light gets reflected off all metallic services. This makes it seem like the light was portrayed as some security more so when the boy runs towards the freezer. The freezer, which was glowing, was his only way out. Also, it seemed as if the shadows almost always covered half of the faces of the actors; this makes the scene appear eerier
