I figured this was deserving of a mention here. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/House_of_Numbers

Someone brought this up in the comments on a cnn.com article (don't read those comments if you have any desire to retain your faith in humanity). It seems to raise a number of good points, is this good scientific information or should I be skeptical?

I believe that you should not be skeptical; rather, you should be extremely skeptical.

The evidence that HIV causes AIDS is very strong. See http://www.houseofnumbers.org/" [Broken], which refutes the film directly.

When people who believe these kinds of conspiracies purposely fudge the facts, that's proof to me they don't even believe it themselves. So what's their motivation?

See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/AIDS_denialism. It's a very dangerous movement, once officially supported by the president of South Africa. That president caused over 300 000 AIDS deaths by impeding the distribution of anti-viral drugs.
