Flower identification, please?

This beauty belongs to my friend in S. Cal.  

She says it blooms once a year then goes dormant (dies back) until the following year and repeats the cycle.

Sorry, this is the only picture I have.

Can anyone identify it?

Ding-ding-ding! (Correct answer! ;-) Thanks Josehf!!!
This picture is not a fake; this Voodoo Lily was the inspiration for the movie “The Little Shop of Horrors”.
