Vic de Philipe (better known as Vic) is one of the antagonists in the Casper movie because he betrays Kat when he asks her to dance with him. He is also sided with his true girlfriend and partner in crime, Amber Whitmire, and Vic, like Amber, is a spoiled and emotionless jerk.
He is portrayed by Garette Ratliff Henson.
He along with Amber are the two bullies at their school and think they are perfect in every way. Vic seems to be helpful at first when he welcomes Kat and locks her locker for her and talks to her, but then he goes off with Amber and makes fun of Kat in class. But he later goes to Kat's house to ask her to dance at the party.
After this though he is shown to be a traitor because he goes off to Amber who asks if the plan's working. He says it is.
When the party goes on Vic and Amber come in through the attic and Amber has a ghost costume she gets in it and sits on Vic's shoulders, and then sees how scary she supposedly looks in the mirror causing her to remark that all their fellow classmates will "freak", causing Vic to say "let me see" and then she lifts up her dress and he smiles evilly. But then the Ghostly Trio come out and laugh at them causing Vic to have a panic attack and run out the mansion dragging Amber with him and turning his previously cool self into a complete nervous wreck and humiliating both of them.
Vic de Phillipe was, much like his classmate Amber, a spoiled narcissistic jerk, but he could be likeable and charming when he wanted. He managed to charm Kat moments upon their first meeting and likewise fooled his entire class that he was a decent person. In reality, Vic was an extremely vain, emotionless jerk, who only prided himself on his own social status and that of Amber's, and he never truly loved Kat, because his true passion was with Amber, and wanted to remain school bully.
Vic was such a good actor he pretended to Kat that Amber was dragging him down and he wanted his own space when in reality he was planning to humiliate Kat by running in screaming with Amber dressed as a ghost, and he was so much deeply in love with Amber that he'd have stuck with her anyway, then he would scare everyone into fleeing and him and Amber would scare Kat half to death dressed as a ghost.
Unlike most boys in his class, Vic was what one would call a sissy, because he valued elegance, charm, pride and wealth more than forceful strength or valour. Indeed, he was a coward, as he was the first to scream upon seeing the Ghostly Trio. Always seen in the company of girls, the other kids eventually saw during his breakdown that the seemingly cool tough Vic was in fact a cowardly, prideful sissy boy, and thus mocked him openly as he fled with Amber in fear.
He got extremely arrogant whenever he was at school, or anywhere in general, even at one point demanding Kat let him into her own house, regardless of whether she liked it or not. Also, Vic, although appearing helpful at first, displayed quite an obnoxious side as he believed everyone else was a simpleton and he was the only one worth focusing on (a trait common in bullies). Vic also believed the worst of everyone and the best of himself and Amber and may have believed him and Amber were the victims. He valued Amber's beauty and his own and he truly loved Amber and would do anything for her. He took pride in having such a beautiful, wealthy, popular girlfriend and understood why she was a bully to others - she was only keeping him as hers, and he loved this. The two of them romantically planned bullying ventures and saw this as a true game. Along came Kat, a new chapter in their game, but with her ghost friends, she turned the tables.
If Vic had any of the major sins, his would be pride, lust, greed and envy. He was very lustful of Amber, and would do anything for her, and slightly envious of Kat taking him from his place as school bully and he was very prideful of himself and had no real connection with anyone. However the plan completely backfired and Vic was humiliated along with Amber, turning his completely cool self into an utter nervous wreck and humiliating both of them. This is when many of the schoolkids stopped admiring Vic because they saw him as the lustful cowardly sissy bully he really was.

- Unlike his other classmates, (apart from Amber) Vic seems very sociopathic for a twelve year old, its unknown why he is so sociopathic for his age but him and Amber do share a connection of being unspeakable sociopaths.
- Vic is very similar to Charlie Walker because he is a treacherous student who seeks fame and is a sociopath willing to defame others.
- Its unknown if the class teacher knows of Vic's criminal partnership with Amber, however Vic's desk is coincidentally right next to Amber's. It is very possible the teacher knows of Vic and Amber's sociopathic nature but is eager to get on their good sides, and so does his best to downplay their bullying.
- Fans conclude that Vic was being bullied by Amber into carrying out her plan and this would make Amber a bigger antagonist then him, because his real plan was to pretend to date Kat then he would run in screaming with Amber dressed as a ghost, scare everyone into fleeing out, then they would potentially scare Kat half to death but both Vic and Amber were unaware Kat lived with real ghosts anyway.
- Vic began the film as a cool, admired kid but at the end of the film he changed to being publically humiliated when he saw the Ghostly Trio and lost his sanity.
