In this brand-new clip, Jake Wheeler (Zackary Arthur), the series’ protagonist, is seen in his high school biology class with Chucky sitting beside him in a chair. His teacher quotes author E.B. White as she walks between the rows of tables, trying to prepare her students to dissect a frog. Jake clearly finds the notion appalling, and his teacher picks up on his reluctance and wonders if he has a religious objection to the task at hand.
“I can’t stand the sight of blood,” he informs her, but — in spite of some taunting from a bully, whom she tells to “shut the f*** up” — she encourages Jake to go through with cutting up the amphibian. He becomes visibly nauseous and breathes heavily to regain his composure, turning away from the table. The clock ticks away. The audience can hear Jake’s heartbeat on the soundtrack. When he turns around, the frog has been split apart, a scalpel sticking out of its still-beating heart. Cue Jake’s amazement and Chucky’s best poker face.
The chilling sight is truly an appetite whetter for the October 12 debut of “Chucky.”
