Storyboard Text

  • I am General Zaroff.
  • Is there big game on the island?
  • The biggest.
  • Exposition: It is a dark night when characters Rainsford and Whitney are aboard a ship and setting out for big game hunting. Little did they know they were unexpectedly heading towards mysterious Ship Trap Island.
  • I am still a beast at bay.
  • Rising Action: Main character Rainsford hears an abrupt sound, falls off the boat, and swims to the nearest land, which happened to be Ship Trap Island. He receives a "friendly" welcome from a big man named Ivan. He is soon introduced to General Zaroff who invites him into his peculiar home.
  • Conflict: Like Rainsford, General Zaroff is also very interested in hunting. General Zaroff's hunting style is a little bit different. Instead of hunting animals, he enjoys hunting humans. This starts the three day hunting trial between the two men. Rainsford must win in order to escape the island alive.
  • Climax: Zaroff has been fooled one too many times by Rainsford during "the hunting game." Zaroff gets a taste of his own medicine when Rainsford jumps off of the cliff, surprises Zaroff in his room, and kills him.
  • Falling Action: After defeating General Zaroff, Rainsford feels accomplished and sleeps in General Zaroff's bed.
  • Resolution: Rainsford remains at the island and takes care of it. He also releases the prisoners that Zaroff has kept captive.
