If you're talking about an anthurium with a flower that looks superficially
like A. andreanum, but having a deep purple to almost black spathe, yes, such a
beast does in fact exist.
Speculation when the list last discussed it ( search the archives at
http://www.mallorn.com/lists/aroid-l/ ) was that it is Anthurium cabrerense
Engler from Colombia.
I am growing a couple of them with only moderate success, and I have not had
them flower for me yet. Apparently, they like the temperature fairly cool,
which is difficult for most of us to provide year round.
Tito Wee has a picture up at the bottom of this page:
Anthurium watermaliense is also sometimes refered to as "black anthurium",
but the infloresence is not as impressive. A picture and description can be
seen at http://www.aroid.org/genera/Anthurium/pachyneurinum/watermal.html
