A24, producer and distributor of many of the best and most ambitious recent independent horror films, has begun offering the chance to get your hands on original props and other mementos from their features, for a good cause.

A24 Auctions is now open here, and will be offering a number of items from Ari Aster’s MIDSOMMAR and HEREDITARY, Robert Eggers’ THE LIGHTHOUSE and others. Proceeds from the auctions will be donated to charities benefitting New York City communities and frontline workers who have been hit hard by the coronavirus pandemic: FDNY Foundation, Food Bank for New York City, NYC Health + Hospitals and Queens Community House. Available today are props from HEREDITARY; on Monday, April 27 at 10 a.m. EST, collectibles from MIDSOMMAR will be up for grabs, including (pictured above and below) the bear headdress, May Queen dress and finishing mallet. On Monday, May 11 at 10 a.m., the auction for THE LIGHTHOUSE will begin, including the light itself!
