“Life is for the strong, and, if need be, taken by the strong. The weak of the world were put here to give the strong pleasure… I hunt the scum of the earth-...”

Zaroff is sadistic and arrogant. He believes that it is morally ok to hunt all living creatures, even humans. He works to gain their trust, but then forces them to play his "game."
