It's a scenario that may be straight out of a sci-fi horror movie, but how would the place where you live fare in the (very unlikely) event of a zombie apocalypse taking over the world?
Well Belfast citizens are in luck: it has been ranked the third best equipped city in the UK to survive an attack of the living dead.
But those outside of the capital needn't fret as two other Northern Ireland locations made the top 10. Armagh City and Newry also placed highly - ranking fifth and seventh respectively - in research carried out by website SaveOnEnergy.com.
Its research focused on how cities would manage left to their own devices, with access to fuel and energy sources likely to be cut off.
Researchers ranked each city and awarded points out of 100 based on eight different 'survival' factors: solar energy produced per year, farming area, the number of farmers per city, air quality, outdoor space, recycling centres, wind farms, and also the number of electric vehicle charging points.
The top spot went to university city Cambridge, followed by Swansea in second place with Bristol two places lower at fourth.
In ninth place was Edinburgh with fellow Scottish city Dundee taking the top 10 place.
Belfast earned its top three place - with an overall score of 329 out of 700 - because it is home to 79 onshore wind farms, has a large farming community and agricultural land.
It also has 51 public parks, which were deemed important to show how much green space is available for residents to take advantage of in the event of a national zombie emergency and 24 recycling centres per 100,000 population.
Armagh City and Newry also scored highly for farmland, with all three Northern Ireland cities boasting 75% farm land - ideal for post zombie survivors faced with growing their own crops.
Not surprisingly, all three ranked top for having the largest number of farmers, with 1.63% of the population being farmers.
It was noted, however, that Armagh ranks second to last in terms of solar power production with 871 kWh of electricity being generated each year, on average.
This means electricity would last for 87 days if power was cut in the event of a walking dead nightmare.
Although both Newry and Armagh City rank highly in the category of recycling centres with 5.56 and 5.15 respectively per 100,000 population.
Despite Northern Ireland's strong performance, points were deducted from Belfast And Armagh for poorer air quality, losing 30 and 32 points respectively.
Researchers also ranked the worst UK cities to be living in should a zombie take-over happen, and Oxford takes the honour with just 82 points out of 700.
The city ranked bottom of the table due to the fact it has no wind farms, a low number of farmers (0.53% of population) and moderate air quality.
The second worst city is Preston, which clocked only 104 points, and has just over two parks per 100,000 people, followed by Derby in third place (108 points).
In joint fourth place are Southampton and Nottingham, with 110 points each, with Glasgow ranked fifth 111 points, followed by Leeds (ranked sixth) and Sunderland which takes the seventh spot.
Meanwhile Leicester was ranked eighth (140 points) and Reading, placed ninth, and Liverpool ranked tenth.
