Whitney and Rainsford are out on the ship deck talking about the Jaguars they are going to hunt, and then they start talking about ship trap island, the island of horrible things, when Whitney calls it a night and goes inside, then Rainsford hears multiple gunshots, and falls of the boat.
Rainsford swims to the ship, but realizes he can't make it and heads to the island and finds himself a house, a big one, with a giant gargoyle door knocker. He picks it up and knocks on the door, then the giant Isaac answers, with a gun to his head. General Zaroff comes down the stairs and has Isaac lower the gun. They go and sit inside and eat a meal
Rainsford asks Zaroff what he hunts, and Zaroff says the most difficult of animals, he said he'd hunted every animal, and they were all too boring for him. He says he hunts an animal that can reason, but only one thing can reason, a human, and that's what he hunts. Rainsford says he's crazy and wants to leave immediately, he calls Zaroff a murderer.
Does he not see me?
Zaroff says there is only one way he can leave, and that is by them hunting each other. Rainsford agrees, and with a three hours head start having only a machete and hunting clothes, he heads out. Rainsford hides in a tree, and Zaroff makes his way to Rainsford. Zaroff looks and rainsford, puts a puff of smoke at him from his cigar, puts on a smirk, and leaves.
Rainsford runs away, and kills one of Zaroff's dog with a trap, and leaves him again. Rainsford runs again, this time, Zaroff comes with his whole heard of dogs, and Isaac with them too. Rainsford puts his machete on a vine, pulled back, ready to kill, and Isaac triggers it, the blade kills Isaac.
Rainsford slides down the mountain, and lands on the beach, Rainsford then returns back to the mansion, and hides behind the curtains in Zaroff's room. Zaroff comes back, with Isaac and his best dog dead. Zaroff finds him, congratulates him, and heads downstairs, and lets the dogs eat , he had stayed alive for three days, he had won.
