The Most Dangerous Game

Real-life parallels

Robert Hansen, a serial killer who was active in the early 1980s, would kidnap women and release them in Alaska’s Knik River Valley. He would then hunt them, armed with a knife and a Ruger Mini-14 rifle.[5][6]

Hayes Noel, Bob Gurnsey, and Charles Gaines discussed in 1976 Gaines' recent trip to Africa and his experiences hunting African buffalo. Inspired in part by The Most Dangerous Game, they created paintball in 1981—a game where they would stalk and hunt each other— to recreate the same adrenaline rush from hunting animals.[7]
