The present perfect of "to watch" is "have watched" - there is no such verb construction as "have watch".

The correct reply could only be "Yes, I have watched this movie before" (I'm sure you realise you would never say "I have watch..."), or "No, I haven't watched this movie before", therefore the interrogative has to be "Have you watched...?"

As a side note, personally I would always ask "Have you seen this movie before?", not "watched".
