Rainsford travels on a yacht in search for his next hunt. He searches for jaguars and must travel overseas.
Due to a luring a noise, Rainsford falls into the water and finds himself on the shore of "Shiptrap" Island- but not alone.
Rainsford explores the island further and encounters an enormous building where he meets Ivan and General Zaroff, both Cossacks. It turns out General Zaroff is fan of Rainsford huntsman works.
After a friendly introduction and meal, General Zaroff reveals that traditional hunting no longer pleases him. He resorts to hunting a new animal, humans. Rainsford, disgusted, wishes to leave immediately,
Zaroff had other plans, forcing Rainsford to choose between being hunted or crushed by Ivan. Choosing the most dangerous game of the hunt, Rainsford puts all he has learned from hunting to the test.
At the dawn of the third day, Rainsford comes out of hiding alive, winning the hunt between Zaroff and him.
