A guy is in an outdoors penal colony or prison of sorts, with a chain attached to him, (potentially forced to work?) and he almost gets pulled in to a giant spinning fan or something in the ground (not sure if that was accidental or punishment for bad behaviour).
It’s in colour, not sure if for tv or cinema, and probably released no earlier than late 1990s. I think it’s a sci-fi and not horror.
Sorry for being so vague but that’s all I remember at the moment, so any help would be much appreciated.
