It is dark night when Rainsford and Whitney are aboard a ship and setting out for a little bit of hunting. Little did Rainsford know that he would unexpectedly end up on a mysterious Ship Trap Island.
Like Rainsford, General Zaroff is also very interested in hunting. General Zaroff's hunting style is a little 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.
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.
Rainsford realize his best option for survival is to get himself in a position where he can control the situation, so he sneaks back into General Zaroff's house and is waiting for him to come into his room.
After a disappointing night, General Zaroff not finding Rainsford, he returns to his house.
General Zaroff reports to his room and to his surprise Rainsford is there waiting for him. Rainsford then kills Zaroff and ends up sleeping in his bed that night.
