MPD Psycho

Is it true that MPD Psycho has 6 episodes? 
A friend told me there where more but i cant find them. Help?

(I know I could just watch them and see how the 6th episode ends, but I want to see them all in a would be an unpleasant surprise if the 6th episode is not the last)

steve mcqueen
for those of you in the philadelphia area (or you might want to check out

there was an article in today's issue of the inquirer about "j horror"

and out of the 7 pictures in the article, 3 of them are miike related.

Rob Zombie is supposedly going to direct the next Halloween.

Could it be that Miike was never truly in line for it? Mere gossip? Hearsay at best?
