When you're trapped in the elevator with the devil, disguised as someone else, it's pretty easy to figure out who is whom.

There's three simple methods:

1. Start whistling "Sympathy for the Devil." Then start singing the line "Pleased to meet you / Hope you guess my name..." Whomever introduces themselves as the Devil (or Satan/Lucifer/etc) is probably the devil.

2. Challenge everyone, one at a time, to a fiddle contest. Whomever pulls out a solid gold fiddle is the Devil. (Or at least, the Robot Devil.)

3. If someone in the elevator is abling pulling-off wearing an open-collared shirt with a double-breasted suit and bears a striking resemblance to Al Pacino, he's the Devil.


What a ludicrously bad concept for a film.
