Victor Hugo Halperin (August 24, 1895, Chicago, Illinois - May 17, 1983, Benton, Arizona) was an American stage actor, stage director, film director, producer, and writer. The majority of his works involved romance and horror.

Halperin began his career as a filmmaker in 1922, working as a writer on The Danger Point (an original story). In two years he was working as a writer-producer-director on the Agnes Ayres film, When a Girl Loves. He is best known for his 1932 horror film White Zombie, starring Madge Bellamy and Bela Lugosi. Once thought "lost", the film has grown in stature over the years, first gaining a cult status, and eventually becoming recognized as one of the leading classics of the genre.

Halperin often worked in collaboration with his brother Edward. The Halperin Brothers produced a series of independent low-budget films in the 1930s. Victor Halperin retired in 1942, after working as a director at PRC studios.

Films Halperin directed include When a Girl Loves (1924), Greater than Marriage (1924), The Unknown Lover (1925), Party Girl (1930), and Girls' Town (1942). Notable horror films include White Zombie (1932), Supernatural (1933), Revolt of the Zombies (1936), Torture Ship (1937), and Buried Alive (1939).
