Nobody quite knew how last year's inaugural "Zombie Apocalypse" would go down in Aberdeen.
Would the north east public really want to put on gory make-up and transform themselves into extras from The Walking Dead? Yes, it turns out.
The success of the frightfest, which was devised by Quids In Theatre Company, highlighted how many Aberdonians were keen to get involved in outdoor drama projects.
As a result, the organisers have confirmed they are planning a bigger, bolder, bloodier event in Duthie Park over three nights, from October 27 to 29.
And they have even confirmed it will involve an over-16s evening, which organiser Annie Begg says will come with "added terror".
Annie says she loves the horror genre. Fling her a hellish George A Romero trilogy and she's in heaven.
So she is already getting excited about the prospect of inviting the north east public to join Quids In during their latest extravaganza.
She said: "It's Zombie time again and Z in the Park will launch on Wednesday, September 9, with the first meeting of people who would like to take part.
"It's at 7pm upstairs in O'Neill's in Back Wynd and we're looking forward to seeing as many people as possible."
The notion of launching a zombie school might strike sceptics as slightly bonkers.
But, if you buy into the whole 28 Days Later scenario, Annie has some tips for how best to enjoy the experience.
She said: "Beginner zombies will also be given a tutorial in how to walk and sound like a proper zombie.
"We've got our own vocabulary for our zombies which we are calling shufflers.
She added: "We have quite slow moving zombies because they won't be chasing people.
"We'll also have a health and safety talk and a test which our zombies need to pass before we set them loose on the public.
"They'll also get as certificate saying they're officially qualified to be a zombie."
