What about taking something somewhat contemporary like "It's only fun until someone gets hurt." This would support Rainsford's attitude about hunting before the main action of the story. Remember how he scoffs at Whitney's idea that animals experience emotions? Would not his attitude have changed after he experieced the "thrill" of being the hunted?

I think the title is a good catch phrase, with the double meaning. You could also ask a question: Are you the hunter, or the hunted? A critic testimonial from a movie might focus on the suspense. How about, "In a world where nothing is what if seems ..." to start with. They all seem to start with "in a world" these days.

How about using the line from the story:

There are two kinds of people in the world: the hunters and the hunted.

It would be an interesting topic to explore that would allow you to demonstrate both your understanding of the story and some of its criticism.

How about this great statement by General Zaroff--"We try to be civilized here."  What delicious irony this is, and you'd be able to do all kinds of things with that in a project of this nature, it seems to me.  All kinds of opportunities to show contrasts of every kind.  Have fun!
