There were few movies arriving this year with as much controversy, publicity and curiosity as Paul Schrader's "The Canyons." The partially crowd-sourced, independently produced film marked a leading lady turn from the troubled Lindsay Lohan, who starred opposite porn star James Deen in his feature film debut. The result? Unsurprisingly it was both divisive and provocative and now you see the complete vision for the movie on home video.

The Canyons Lindsay Lohan

There were few movies arriving this year with as much controversy, publicity and curiosity as Paul Schrader's "The Canyons." The partially crowd-sourced, independently produced film marked a leading lady turn from the troubled Lindsay Lohan, who starred opposite porn star James Deen in his feature film debut. The result? Unsurprisingly it was both divisive and provocative and now you see the complete vision for the movie on home video.

To recap, the movie was written by Bret Easton Ellis and chronicles the tale of trust-fund baby Christian (Deen), who is working on financing a horror film simply to keep his dad off his back. His girlfriend Tara (Lohan) is helping him with casting, and his producer, Gina (Amanda Brooks) is trying to get her struggling actor boyfriend Ryan (Nolan Funk) the lead role. Christian is also fond of inviting strangers into his home for threesomes or foursomes with the very willing Tara—and captures all the action on his smartphone. But when Christian finds out Tara cheated on him, cruel mind games and more shocking events unfold from which there can be no redemption. So how do you get your hands on a copy of the unrated director's cut on DVD?

Email us your name, address and tell us what the most shocking movie you saw this year was — new or old! Good luck!

"The Canyons" arrives on both Blu-ray and DVD on November 26th, but the Unrated Director's Cut is only available on DVD.

Update: Contest closed, winners will be contacted via email.
