My assault on the megalith of 80s sci-fi movies has begun, with "Hangar 18" (1980).

Now a somewhat obscure film, it was one of the earliest film incarnations of what I like to call the "Area 51 Myth" that I can recall.

The movie modernizes the story and changes up the locations, but it has a lot of the elements of the shared myth about a captured alien spacecraft with dead aliens found aboard it.

One more influence from "Hangar 18"?

The mysterious government agents who chase the astronauts are listed in the credits as "mib" -- that is, "men in black", I suppose!
