The Dark Lord rises? Ellen Pompeo posted a rare family photo taken on Halloween this past Saturday, Oct. 31, but the cute snap was photobombed by something (possibly) wicked.

"This is a private family photo that I decided to share because of what appeared in the image…" the Grey's Anatomy actress, 45, wrote, alongside a pic of herself in a costume with her husband, Chris Ivery, and their eldest daughter, Stella Luna.

The family, all matching in spooky ensembles, pose together in the photo — but what's seen in the upper left corner of the pic is slightly more sinister. In the shadows of the snapshot, a face with dark eyes and rotting teeth looms over the family and background.

Petrified fans commented on the creepy snapshot and called out Pompeo for scaring them.

Another fan posted a horrifying blurry snap of what looked like a hand patting the head of a woman.

Pompeo joked that the face resembled horror movie villain Michael Myers.
