    hi
    i remember seeing this film in the late 70s/early80s can`t recall much but it seemed to be about a village/town that was being taken over by some sort of alien race.
    All i can remember was these small stones/pods that if a normal person picked up it would explode in thier face leaving a mark on thier forehead also there was a large dome complex involved, the ending i think involved a backdrop of the domes on fire and the hero escaping thro` some sort of pipe (i think).
    One of them films that might or might not have been any good but i always wanted to see again, can`t for the life of me recall the name so any help would be greatly apreciated.
    thanks
