Entertainment Reviews:

USA Today - 11/06/1995
"...This is the most famous version of Richard Connell's often-filmed short story..."
Sight and Sound - 09/01/2012
"Relative to other early talkies it's action-packed and bloodthirsty..."

Product Description:

After a shipwreck, a big game hunter washes up on a remote island only to discover that its owner, also a hunter, has tired of tracking animals and has developed a taste for a new prey...humans. Co-Director Shoedsack performed the same duty on KING KONG, as did producer Cooper. The film also used the same jungle sets and star Wray. Based on Richard Connell's famous, oft-filmed story.

Plot Synopsis:

Count Zaroff, a megalomaniac big game hunter, bored with shooting animals, has turned his attentions to other prey: human beings. He has yet to lose one of his unfair competitions (his less-than enthusiastic participants are armed with only a knife, while the Count is allowed a high-powered rifle) and eagerly waits for the next unfortunate soul to get shipwrecked on the small island he calls home. However, the Count doesn't expect to meet a man like Robert Rainsford, who proves to be more than a worthy match for the mad hunter.
