worse...might be the timing chain jumped a tooth~ take the timing cover off and inspect the timing marks...or- ...a compression test on each cylinder~

If turning over slow or not at all could be loose or dirty battery cables, low battery, starter going bad or loose or dirty frame and motor negative battery connections
