Glenn McQuaid (born 1972/1973) is an Irish film director.

McQuaid began his career at Glass Eye Pix, where he performed visual effects on films such as The Roost (2005) and The Last Winter (2006). Inspired by the muted reception of one of his short films, he made his feature film debut, I Sell the Dead (2008), more comedic. He cites David Cronenberg as an influence. Rotten Tomatoes gives the film a 74% approval score based on 42 reviews. After I Sell the Dead, he worked on the segment Tuesday the 17th in V/H/S, a 2012 horror anthology film. The short was inspired by his enjoyment of early 1980s slasher films. In 2014, he directed The Trouble with Dad, a segment in another horror anthology film, Chilling Visions: 5 States of Fear.

McQuaid collaborated with Fessenden again on the audio play anthology series Tales From Beyond the Pale, which he co-created.

McQuaid was born in Dublin, Ireland, and lives in New York City, New York, US. He is openly gay.
