This is a matter of vague childhood memories, but I remember seeing a preview for a film on TV where a man was brought out of cryogenic suspension and somehow, the process had made him a killer. I want to say that the preview stated that he'd come back without a soul. I suspect it was around 1990 because I remember seeing what I thought was the preview again, but instead, it was for Child's Play 3, showing Chucky being remade out of the melted plastic from the prior film.

As for actual imagery of the preview, I don't recall a ton. I remember a scene of the killer being decanted from suspension, complete with billowing liquid nitrogen fog, and a later scene showing him being introduced at a party. It didn't seem futuristic in tone, probably set in the then present day.

I'm 99% certain it's not Demolition Man.

Could it be Wes Craven's Chiller?

Synopsis: Corporate exec Miles Creighton dies, and is cryogenically frozen in the hopes that he can be revived. 10 years later, the procedure is a success, and Miles returns--without his soul.

    That's too close of a match to be coincidence. Huh. I guess they must have been previewing a reshow. Either that, or my brain is conflating two different movie teasers...
