Horrible Noises Coming from Filter

Well, my filter has woken me with horrible noises this morning. It is still pumping water, but the noise is somewhere between a mechanical noise and almost like a splash. I absolutely cannot sleep with it on, so it is off. What could be causing the noise and how long is my cycle safe with the filter off, but still in the tank. It is a basic hang-on-the-back power filter. I have had it for a whole month...

It sounds like it's somehow gotten air in it. Unplug it. Take it apart to make sure nothing is stopping it up. Put it back in. Reprime it. See if the noise stops.
