Quick - someone tell me what this plant is!

I was over at a friend's house and came across what I think is a member of the passionflower family:

However, I've been plowing through guides and I can't nail down the Latin name or find anything like this plant online.

That bloom is crazy. Could it perhaps be the fruit and not the flower? 

Anyone got an idea what I found?

Might be related to sacred datura.

I don't think so, since it was a climbing vine. The flowers also don't match - just did some Googling. Good try, though.

I actually had a datura pop up in my garden one year and went, "Whoa... what is that? It looks like something the devil planted!!!" Took me a while to track down what in the world it was. Apparently they're really poisonous, too, so not something I really wanted in my lettuces...

Looks like Clematis reticulata to me.
