Diabolical, as I can't move (7)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

satanic

Here is my best explanation:

'diabolical' is the definition.

('satanic' can be a synonym of 'diabolical')

'as i can't move' is the subsidiary indication.

'move' indicates an anagram.

'as'+'i'+'cant'='asicant'

'asicant' with letters rearranged gives 'satanic'.
